I think Jicks (albeit sometimes provocative) postings result in some very interesting U2 discussions.

indeed Just my 2 cents IMHO people

Cheers, B7

Also, jick does sometimes come up with very insightful posts. Occasionally. He's not 100% negativity.

Cheers,

A

I don't actually view his posts as negative. He appears to hone in on specific details of things and mention the 0.01% thing that he doesnt like about something. Thats not to say he doesnt like the other 99% of the item being discussed, which I think is what people presume. Hes actually said a lot of positive stuff about Adams bass playing etc it just gets overlooked when people allow their blood to boil over at something else that people may perceive as negative.

To me, Jick actually comes across as a perfectionist, with a fine eye for detail.

2 cents, perverts, opinions, peace

Could you sell a special premium membership option that allows the purchaser to make unlimited personal attacks against other members?

Jick, may your legacy carry on through the ages.

peace on earth/good will towards man.

This is the funniest thread I've seen in a while. May it go on forever - cross my fingers. There's your new fad phrase, cross your fingers.

Yes I've seen an usual amount of people use that phrase - hate to bring it up, but I am trying to stay on topic, I've actually never recalled such a phrase used in an actual conversation. I do hope that I don't, because recommending anyone who does to this forum would quite possibly slip out of my mouth on accident.

Aye we're all guilty of slipping down to catchphrases.

It's an extraordinary thing.
We came out of punk rock.
Thanks to Edge, Adam and Larry for letting me be in their band.
