I love this board because of the lively and intellectual discussions we have.

We can discuss anything from the piercing in Britney's navel to the crisis in Darfur with the same people.....

We all have different opinions about different things and I greatly admire the intellect and intelligence of the posters here who argue their points in a constructive way.

In short, I love the "Hyde Park" atmosphere and the free flow of discussion and exchange of ideas.

It's also been a means for me to get to know a lot of people from different parts of the world - and that's always a plus.

Finally, just as you don't have to be Jewish to enjoy Gefilte fish and chicken soup, you don't HAVE to be a U2 fan to enjoy it.........

GREAT question.

The people are entertaining, there's always some e-drama to laugh at somewhere and there's always SOMEONE who will know the answer to your question.

For the U2 part:

We seem to have the very latest within seconds of it happening, and I love it when six months later someone posts a story from u2.com saying something we found out six months ago.

For the rest:

The people, the relaxation to some extent, great topics, people who can and will help you which is great, and I spose pleba and ooc are great for people who can actually keep up with them. I can't. I'm on here for like 30 mins a day tops, every day there'sa a new pgp or temple bar.

Oh yes indeed ... the people alone, make being here at Interference.

They can help you 'pass the time away' and 'feel better' (especially when you're not having a good day)

For the people! Have made some lifetime friendships through this site . Never had a bad experience with meeting someone in person either.

I was lucky enough to have joined during the beginning of the Vertigo tour too. Loved being able to read other members concert experiences and to share mine. Oh and Im a sucker for these smilies

Oh, and the variety of non-U2 discussions available. I've discovered a lot of new bands thanks to this site and for that I'm grateful.

The fact that this site is still very much active in between albums and tours tells you all you need to know. The people are, for the most part, intelligent, witty, funny, insightful and just plain nice. There's always someone around that's willing to help a fellow in need.

I've been here for more than seven years now, and it's one of the first sites I visit after a major news story breaks, just to read what people's reactions are.

well I joined about 5 years ago but didn't start actively posting until late last year. the people here keep me coming back, some I've gotten close to, some it's just been enjoyable to interact with. the variety of topics on the boards is what makes it fun. I think sometimes I prefer the oddball topics to the U2 ones. and if anything gets too serious or heated, you have the choice to leave or just not post.

I joined close to s6 1/2 years ago as zonelistener. I joined to get info/meet fellow U2 fans at a show. I finally got to meet my first Interferencer about six months later (Sulawesigirl), and was HITCHED into the site after that.

I have probably met more interferencers than any other member (or at least I am in a pretty tight "race" with BAW and Mr. BAW), and have to say that it is the members of this community that is my favorite thing.

You know what really got me hooked?

("What???" screams the crowd...)

After actually meeting some of the people in person that I saw or talked to on here. That got me posting more. I think I spent about a year lurking before I really posted.

So, short answer....the peeps.
