At this time we can confirm that this poster is using the same IP address as "The Edge". This is not a staff member however or any other member for that matter.

We have been investigating where the source of these claims have been coming from. We have not issued any sort of statement yet on the issue as we are not able to conclude confidently ANYTHING at this time.

We realize this is not much information for all of you, but we need to be able to have clarification ourselves before stating anything publicly on the forum.

Many of the comments made in the intitial post of this thread do not match up to what has both been posted publicly by 'The Edge'/'Dalkey Beach' (or any other name they have used), nor do they match up with things said in email and private messages with various staff.

We fully intend to find out exactly who is being misled by who, and possibly even who is being misled about being misled. While that may sound confusing there is no more appropriate situation than now for the use of this word: beLIEve

One also has to wonder why it has taken almost a month for this individual(s) to come forward and make statements about an interview they now claim to be false.

We are still investigating all matters surrounding these 'events'.

For a moment, let's pretend that D.Smith is the one who wrote this. If she is a staff member, why would other Interference staff members try to contact her family for an interview?! Is she related to The Edge? And why would she post this way?

If it's not the real D. Smith that's posting here and on @U2, then this proves to me that this post isn't real - it's just some troll trying to cause problems.

Again, I await to hear from the staff or the REAL U2 camp on this entire situation.

edit: this was in response to ABEL.

I thought IP addresses didn't mean anything.

Elvis, perhaps you can clarify how these people deceived you into believing they were The Edge.

But is what this poster is saying true? IS it all a fake?

The Edge/Dalkey beach? I thought those two were not the same person?

This is getting weirder each time we read about it...one also has to wonder why the staff has not cleared this thing by now. I understand the mods may have been tricked but I would have thought Elvis would have ways to verify...

We were just confirming that this poster used the same IP address, and no other accounts besides the ones in question have that same IP.

and who'd be stupid enough to use the same IP?

IPs don't mean anything to me because I can't see them

AND if you all knew these IPs all along surely you knew they weren't coming from Dublin

not when your best staf member doesn't believe this Edge/Dalkey crap and therefore you want to kick her out before she learns too much about all the IP's flying around

congrats!

What you are insinuating Salome is some big stuff.

I only hope you are wrong.

As we stated what was posted does not match up to reality (public posts, private messages, and email).

We have not cleared this 'thing' because we're still investigating many aspects of this, a great deal of which has NOT been in the public's eye.
