if it is a flaw in my personality that I don't agree with this
well, shame on me

This better come clean and out in the open, and if Edge is fake and a mod is faking him, I have no respect for this fansite anymore and I am gone.
Exactly. And if Elvis can lie about Edge, who's to say he can't lie about needing a new server and everyone sending him money? I know that's a dangerous thought, but those are the type of things one begind to think after everything gets fucked up b/c a few people seemingly have nothing better to do with their time.

I agree that it would be really fucked up if The Edge turns out to be a lie, but for now I don't believe that.
Even though I don't trust Elvis. But that's just my natural mistrust against anyone who has absolute or just too much power, which is also the main reason why I never became or probably will become a Premium Member...

Interference is in direct contact with "people close to the band" in trying to resolve all of this. I can't say anymore on this at the moment. A lot of you are making A LOT of assumptions, and this is getting WAY out of control. We WILL post something when we have something to post, we are being patient, so you are going to have to be as well. I am leaving this thread open for comment, please respect that and act accordingly.

mainly because - as I stated earlier - it would be beyond shameful when should this turn out not to be Edge (and based on what I've read I would say that is a less than 50% probability) we only get a lame "ah sorry, we were also tricked, tisk, damn Don from Chicago to pull this one on us" excuse
most obvious spelling mistakes were editted from that quote

congrats to both of you
not sure if that's a compliment. Just trying to be level-headed at this point but its pretty much a wait and see situation right now and we're all wanting to know the outcome. (self included) i laugh because i find it funny... its one of those damned if you do or damned if you don't deals.

you weren't being level headed
you were ridiculing someone else's post
that's not entirely the same

I don't get this part either

either someone on Interference's staff has at some point had any proof that would lead to believe that this really is The Edge and therefore awarded him with an official band status or not
that can be stated right now and needs no delay whatsoever

if only now steps are being undertaken to figure this out
then that's rather odd on its own
and doesn't seem to be on one line with the little bits we were told about this

FYI this just came up on atu2.com posted by the site's owner concerning our situation here:

At the moment, U2 is 100% focused on the single, the album, the tour, their book, the RRHOF stuff, the marketing and promotion, and everything that accompanies these things. What's going on with Interference (or any fan site, for that matter) is the equivalent of a fly buzzing around their ankle.

When I was speaking to my contact last week about this, the idea of making an announcement on U2.com came up but it was also suggested they didn't want to give the situation more publicity. I suppose that's the decision they've made, and when I wrote in my original post about waiting for someone to say something, I was referring as much to U2.com as anyone else.

not ridiculing someone... merely turning the tables
people don't seem to care for that as much, but oh well laugh it off and move on.

but what exactly are we waiting for?

I've been trying to remain out of this since it started because I figure that I don't know shit about what goes on behind the scenes here. I love this place, I've made great friends here, and I've always trusted the mods and Elvis whole-heartedly.....
I wasn't studying the conspiracy theories or trying to solve the puzzle.
I figured I had no reason to get to the bottom of anything.

That said, I was, to say the least, a little surprised to see Elvis' post about talking to people close to the band to resolve this.

I was unaware there was anything to "resolve". I thought this was a done issue in the eyes of Interference and the staff....meaning I believed that there was a united front all agreeing that this was, in fact, THE Edge.

I am truly not trying to fuel the fire here though I probably am.

I just don't understand how I was under the impression that there was nothing to "resolve" and now something needs resolution.

What EXACTLY needs resolution?
