We thought it might bother people for a little bit, admittedly. That was the idea of the whole joke, to have a quick laugh. We were all saying we didn't expect to get past one song, let alone Flower Child. FLOWER CHILD!

As soon as people bought it, I knew there'd be a troublesome aftermath. I'm not surprised by there being a reaction. Strong at times, and illogical at times, but not unexpected, really.

I hear you. As I said, I found it funny too, big picture-wise, but, I am not at all surprised that some people did not find it comical.

Well, when Rob posted for the first time, I knew we had trouble. He's nuts for U2.

I'm a little sad that Rob33 didn't pipe up in the aftermath threads. I felt bad when I saw he was caught up in the joke - I thought he was just starting to kind of get the drift of this place and feel more comfortable, and I hope he didn't get too pissed when he found he got fooled.

I felt bad, though not as much when he started saying things like, "I can't breathe!" and "I feel pulses all over my body!"

I felt bad for him still, but I mean, c'mon.

You know, as I watched that thread progress, he was the one I was most feeling bad for. It's not really relevant if he should or should not have caught on earlier to me. I just felt bad for him and still do.

I should qualify all of this by saying that I'm certainly no angel on this site, and have said all sorts of antagonistic things. I most certainly have my questionable moments, and I try to own up to them afterwards.

I've been there, prone to exaggeration over something I'm really excited about, concerning something I really love.

(Oops, not quick enough. That was in response to THE AMENDMENT.)

I think people need to seriously get a life, on both sides. This is, after all, an Internet message board, not real life, so there's no reason for people to take it as seriously as they do.

But Interference being what it is, and fanatical U2 fans being what they are, things will never change.

I did see him listed as on the forum later on afterwards for a bit. I'd imagine he'll be back soon.

We were saying we were feeling bad about it, but by the same token with every passing song we honestly expected everyone would call us on it.

I must admit if i hadn't seen the scepticism on the first page or so of the thread i probably would have been fooled to No Line or Flower Child, and definitely no longer fooled by Mercy.

That is presuming a venue like the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein didn't make me think HOAX anyway.
