I have tons of evidence supporting the fact that I'm a dork, no keychain is going to make it any worse.

an occassional slip up every once in a while would be acceptable, the amount of mistakes U2.com makes is ridiculous
I spend as much on Axver's posts as I do on U2.com.

Perhaps I am just a genius.

Well I don't know about you lot but I'd rather read Axver's posts over just about anything on U2.com...

...what if Axver starts posting on U2.com?! OMG.

Who's renewing if there is no ticket benefit??? Not me. They can keep the business card sized videos we all already own and lyrics we already know. I won't shed a tear over Zootopia...or my U2.com email address I never used.

They probably have a mild interest, and have some inclination about what happens with the band. We just happen to have about 7 resident setlist executives here on Interference and draw on a vast pool of self-proclaimed U2 evangelists, educated in the finest finishing schools the internet can offer.

We should start a collective U2 fact checking service. We could work in shifts around the clock, worldwide. That way when Diane Sawyer and GMA say erroneous facts about the ellipse process we can correct them prior to their national embarassment. When some newspaper incorrectly researches a shoe size for Bono, the oncall fact checker will respond immediately with the correct information. No stone will be left unturned, no media outlet embarassed or incorrect. Everyone, everywhere will know that Bob Hewson was a postal worker and that U2 accepted no money for the Ipod commercial.

you know what, its not really the setlist errors or small crap that annoys me, its when they send out an email saying there will be 2 vegas shows, one on friday and one on saturday.

and then they tell you that there will be a presale for both shows, and you think hey cool, im going to use my presale code for the saturday show. then you check ticketmaster and the saturday show isnt listed. so you email u2.com and ask if there will really be a presale for the saturday show like they said in the email. and then you get no reponse. and then you keep waiting for ticketmaster to list the saturday show, but they never do so you buy tickets for the friday show at the last minute of the presale.

then you wait for the day of the general sale for them to add the second show. you wait all day because as soon as the first one sells out they always added the second one. yet hours and hours go by and nothing comes up. then that night they say tickets for the satyurday show will go on sale the next week, and there wont be a presale for it.

and now you're pissed you waited a full day for nothing, and if u2.com would have just sent out the correct info in the first place, or at least responded to a valid question, then all of the confusion could have been avoided.

but nope, theyre jackasses

"Up til now we've felt that there was so much high quality U2 information on sites run by fans that we shouldn't add to it unless we could do something significantly different." "But now with technological advancements, we're in a position to offer something unique."--Edge.

I personally go to 4 different U2 sites, each has something different to offer, different perspectives.

I like the posters at the different message boards too.

Plus Zootopia doesn't make me login if I take awhile to type up a post. Nothing more irritating than writing a long post (not always about U2 either) and I go to post, and I have log in again, and what I typed is gone.

Interference isn't the only site that does this, but Zootopia, I once started a post, had to do something took about 45 minutes, came back, and the post submitted just fine.

If I get high speed internet, I'm renewing.

Interference charges for premium memberships too, so it's not like some people aren't willing to pay for other features for a website.

I haven't found any biographies about U2 on U2.com, know why?

Google that information, how many sites will you get saying where U2 are from, school they went to, etc.

Plenty of U2 fan sites have news, tour dates, tour itineraries, why should U2.com have the exact same information. It'd be boring, there is stuff on U2.com that few fansites have, that's what I think an official site should have.

We're not saying that we want the information on tour dates/song debuts and stuff......we're saying that we want the info to be accurate so that those who aren't as knowledgeable/devoted us can go to the official u2 website and get they information they need. We also don't wanna spend 40 dollars and receive virtually no benefits (and sometimes disadvantages!)

what exactly are we getting for our 40 bucks?

how about a soundboard recording from one of the shows?

how about some live video clips from the tour?

how about anything to make it worthwhile?
