"irregardless" is not a word

How that turned into a Canadian thing, I don't know.

It's a long and pointless story.

Pardon me, but I'm not in the business of making things up.

In a strange way, that statement sums up my thread quite nicely.

Perhaps what is confusing about The Edge thing is we've heard so many things by now: it is him, it's not him and someone is pretending to be him (I even heard Elvis is really "the Edge" - and wasn't there a time way back when Elvis was posing as Edge and later revealed himself?), Dalkey Beach is the Edge - and all the moderators were quite reluctant to give more info.

I can assure you it's not! Your source was defaming a fine nation.

Edited to add, U2Girl, I agree there has been a lot of (it seems to me unnecessary) vagueness that has added to the confusion.

The only sources for these "heard" things have been other members who doubted. The mods and Joel have been very consistent on this point.

Really?
I don't recall any consistency regarding Dalkey Beach (apart from shying away from the debate about him being Edge or not and closing threads regarding that), or in fact The Edge (and lack of him lately) except basically "trust us".
If the mods have connections to official sites, it shoud not be too hard to get official confirmation from the U2 organisation whether band member(s) have accounts on this site.

Come to think of it, I think threads questioning Edge being Edge got closed pretty fast too.
If he's been posting for days, why the sudden stop?

What do you mean the sudden stop?

OK I just noticed he was in the Zoo station as a opener thread.

I mean he had a few posts in EYKIW, he reportedly went to PLEBA and SNAP...I don't think he appeared ever since. (till today, that is)

People have been wary regarding the "I'm a fan of mr Elvis" comment he made and the use of smilies. Or the lack of Edge posts recently.

Maybe he's just not too concerned about raising his post count?

With all due respect, this statement is pretty ludicrous. Could you imagine calling Principle and asking them to confirm, for example, that Bono likes to go to the supermarket around 3:00 on Tuesdays? They would, I'm sure, say that they do not discuss the band members' personal schedules with casual inquirers. Surely they would know that while the Edge has chosen to reveal himself, the other members who may (or may not) post here and the members of management who may (or may not) post here are entitled to a measure of privacy and anonymity until they choose not to exercise it (as Edge has).

Certainly one of the best arguments for the authenticity of Edge and anyone else who may crawl out of the blue woodwork is that nothing has happened to Interland! Surely, if the interview or Ask the Edge or anything was fake, we would have been threatened with legal action! Faking something like this is very very serious, and the RIAA and management would surely take it as such. Obviously, since this site is still standing and in fact flourishing, no one has a problem with what we've posted...because it is not, in fact, fake.

I understand that some of this may seem hard to believe, but please let me know when someone gets through to Principle about Larry's laundry schedule or when Bono typically makes it to the post office.

I'm sure Edge would be very to know we are all concerned with his posting counts, the man is busy he comes in and posts when he can which instead of appreciating we have to poke and prode.Okay so if you simply don't believe it's him thats fine your not going to get any proof you need here that will satisfy you. An as mentioned before it is highly unlikely any "official site" will comment on Edge being here..although I am sure fans have tried on top of that it's not the Mods responsibility to deal with U2's Management ..So I guess you just believe or not and yes sure I can understand people might have doubts but really all that will be said has been said.. I'm sure he's having a bit of a chuckle at all the speculation and coming in ..having a bit of fun when he can
