Do you ever look back at all the years of this site…

..and still be shocked that someone called another member’s church?

I was playing MLB The Show the other day and played the Liechtenstein Whalers and couldn’t not think of interference.

shit i can still remember exactly where i was when it happened lol

it's in the pantheon of Interference moments. I'd probably argue Fake Edge as the #1 WTF moment - but the church call stands alone in the 2 hole.

And the fact that the guy owned up to it right away like it was no big deal. Like "Yeah I did it. So what?" and then he was banned 5 minutes later.

it all kind of started here...

https://www.u2interference.com/forum...ml#post7692412

after re-reading this? i may have to rethink Fake Edge/Dalkey Beach being the #1 moment.

oh and in the thread that follows this one? i go round for round with a poster who tried to argue that the U2 album is delayed by Jimmy Iovine on behalf of the illuminati. true story.

ahh shit this place used to be the best (and worst).

my favorite part of the aftermath of the whole church calling thing, in hindsight, is that a lot of the people who were complaining about how this place was becoming a toxic cesspool are now active participants in the political forum of TalkU2.

other highlights from those threads...

**iron yuppie made a comment in summer 2013 that U2 will never become hip and cool with the kids again if they insist on making every release a spectacle. ha!

**a poster thought it would have been a good idea for U2 to tag along on the new iTunes/iPhone release in September 2013. also ha!

so i'm on a full on 2013/2014 interference u2 rabbit hole now...

the guy who first tweeted that U2 would be releasing the album at the apple event? currently sends out pro-putin propaganda for RT.

so maybe that illuminati guy was on to something.

2008 meltdown of the album getting delayed was also pretty epic.

The plot thickens! I have been contacted by someone who says that the person who we all think called the church did NOT call the church! Either Shawn made it up or we have not caught the real church caller yet!

Well make no mistake, your oppressive rule, should it continue, will be brought to light and dealt with swiftly and justly.
The administrator and his/her yes-men will not strong-arm me into keeping my mouth shut on this matter. It’s called “FREEDOM OF SPEECH”. I will no longer be a silent drone to this oppression and tyrannical censorship.
