I love it here no matter what. I came here to find out more about trading for live U2 and not only did I get more live U2 than I ever thought existed but I made a lot of friends along the way. I met two of my closest friends I've ever had in my life on this website. I can guarantee that without them wouldn't be seeing U2 11 times this year, I wouldn't travel to strange cities only to sit on a sidewalk all day waiting for hours to maybe get a picture or an autograph of my favorite band, I wouldn't have gone to Ireland last month, gone 2 U2 fan conventions last year, or traveled to San Diego, Memphis, Phoenix and any place else we've been to in the past few years. I didn't come here thinking I would meet two people who would want to drop what they are doing to travel the country or to other counties with me but now I don't know what I would do without them in my life.

This website is the first thing I look at in the morning and the last thing I look at before I go to bed. Interference I hate when people who have only been here a few months start to complain about the way things are around here.

. New people are fine so long as they act like mature adults. And of course, the same goes with people who've been here for a long time as well.

At another board I go to, though, I've heard people state a belief in which "newbie" isn't so much a description of how long you've been there as it is the attitude you present. Don't know who here would agree with that, but just something to put out there.

And that's sad.
For what it's worth, I care about that. I haven't been a part of these boards for three years now for nothing, after all .

Also, to what bonosgirl84 and nbcrusader said.

I feel sad that some people are thinking of leaving, though . Don't let a few jerks ruin things for you-there are still good people here. But then again, it is your choice.

Oh the delicious drama of a public panty-wadded farewell.

Another newbie leaves in a fit of pique.

Buh-bye!

I agree completely. The more you post, the more you find people who share your opinions and make friends. This place is good fun. And $12 really isn't much.

PS: And Sicy is right. This place does pull you in. I took a break from this site when I went on vacation. Couldn't wait to log back in when I got back. It's addictive!
It's $1 a month which is like 3 or 4 cents a day. Cheap entertainment! And this is quite addictive. My daughter just said... You'll be a blue crack addict someday (referring to my current status, LOL). I'm already an addict, and when not here I think of which smileys I would use in certain situations. I don't have a lot of free time, but most of it has been spent here the last 4 or so months. And this is the only place where I can share my passion for U2 with others who feel the same. Hopefully when the band are back in the fall in L.A., I will meet up with others here from Interference, and I do look forward to that. It's worth it to me, and like arw said, it's the first place you look at online in the morning, and the last before bed. I don't see me wanting to leave anytime soon.

Group hug!

I'm tired of being at such a restrictive forum that makes you PAY if you want to read profiles! perform the most basic of searches! view attachments and loads more you get for FREE on ANY other forum it's insane...I don't care how big the forum is, there are MUCH better things you could think of for making us pay for a 'membership'...I'm a member of quite a few forums that are twice the size of interference and don't charge a penny, so the whole size issue is bullshit.

And I know some Mod will just come in here and say 'No-one's making you pay. Don't want to pay? Then DON'T...blah blah blah,' (no pun) and that brings me to another point...mods here are FAR too defensive whenever you question something to do with the forum...and ride around the forum on a self-righteous high horse closing threads as they see fit when they've had the last word, damning any right of reply, and basically being blunt with people asking perfectly reasonable questions and acting as if we should all know better...!

I hope you all have a nice time, but I think I need to carry on posting somewhere where opinions are heard and respected rather than wasting time I could be spending there, here...I do hope the forum cleans up it's act, introduces things WORTH paying for and admits what a crock of horse-shit that whole Edge incident was...I can't believe people would abuse the trust of U2's fans like that...

don't worry, I shan't be checking back for replies so perhaps a mod would like to come in, say how silly I am for questioning the forum and close the topic. :Wink:

Bye

Ps. If Jick isn't already back on the forums under another name (do an IP check, I guess) BRING HIM BACK. Seriously, people like him and StarvinMarvin are what made this forum interesting. I like people who can see the bad points and be honest about things instead of constantly gushing...
Who gives a shit?
Have a nice life tho.

I don't pay shit and still have a good time here; who gives a shit if I can't view a picture of someone's halloween costume from last year?


I do think some mod's have an attitude though

That's the majority of the people here, actually. Not like there's just two of them.

No one cares that you're leaving, this didn't deserve your own thread. If you had just stopped posting, no one would have noticed. What have you done that's so great?

Don't like it here? Then it's a good thing you left, otherwise I'd tell you to get your arse out.

I care that he's leaving and I would've noticed if he'd stop posting. Some of you in this thread need to stop making such rude comments - some of which are rather hypocritical.

I personally don't like threads where someone declares their intention to leave, as they're usually just attention-seeking, and I also don't like it when people grovel for that person to return, but what's worst of all is when the thread turns into a rude, offensive "glad you're gone" thread that just proves the original poster's point.

And regarding the sense of community, I was here for over a year and had something like 3000-4000 posts before I really felt welcomed and considered people here to be friends. Maybe the size of the forum was a bit daunting for me.

let's be honest; there are clicks here just like in high school.

the funny thing is that you're not judged on your looks or popularity but rather on how well you type in a response on a computer.

umm.....so yeah, when ya gotta go ya gotta go.

bon voyagee.

Wasn't he just complaining about changing his name? Perhaps he'll be back with a new name.
