I'm sure the fact that today is the day Elvis was returning from his vacation is just a coincidence.

So was someone in your family posting as the Edge as well?

Yes, I was wondering the same thing (see my above post). I would hope this isn't the situation... but I've noticed the staff has been very quiet on this issue as of late, and "Edge" hasn't posted in some time. Furthermore, "Edge" used to have all sorts of information in his profile, but it is now empty. Hmmm...
Yes I saw that after I posted

Sure is funny somebody comes out of the blue and tries to squeal on it being fake then jumps right in going how we shouldn't blame the staff and how there are worse problems in the world, whatever

I REALLY feel sorry for the mods! I know they have to see or know something, having IPs and all, (though not everything) but even though they don't approve of the shenanigans they can't tell us a thing. What a bad spot to be in

I feel the same way. What a fucked up position to be put in.

Why use the real name over there and not here? Or IS that really dsmith? Who knows anymore! I feel like Stephen King's IT- is it you, or is it the clown! Kiss me fat boy!

Wow, this is a complete saran wrap job. How long did it take the staff to cook up what is the *Worst Excuse Ever!* If it's not completely made up then the site is at least guilty of extreme stupidity. How can you not verify a source for someone who has a PR and a management firm? Especially when you are the recipient of donations and premium memberships? I've been watching this whole saga from the very beginning. I read that interview and laughed. As for the relative of the person purported to be The Edge. How dumb do you think people here are? Are you their Dad? Mom? Brother? What? and why would you care about what your relative does on an anonymous message board?

Watching this whole thing unravel over the next couple of days is going to be really interesting. Almost worth the 12 bucks.

::::Kicks back and opens a beer::::

Let the recriminations begin!!!

Yes, who is D. Smith? That doesn't do anything to clarify the situation. And why have this e-mail posted at @U2 but not here?

The note on @U2 tells us to write to this "family member" expressing our disappointment. What family member? The person who supposedly gave a faux interview? The person who pretended to be "Edge"? Are they one in the same? Is this person related to the real Edge? Again, who is this D. Smith? How did this person suddenly find out this great mystery and correct the situation? And why were Interference staff members bothering this person (D. Smith or the family member) so much? Who are they that Interference would care?

In other words, D. Smith's post is just as vague and suspicious as the interview and all of the Edge's posts. Something isn't right here...

Dsmith is the name of a staff member but I don't know if she is really the person who made that post.

Poor Edge. All this happening to his family while America is at war and having an election.
