Bono's speaking engagement/schedule

Does one exist? I'd love to go see one of his speaches, even if it means flying and paying a premium 'donation' for the ticket.

I don't know if one exists b/c he never speaks for the same event or organization more than once, but if something were to happen, PLEBA would know. You could also PM Jamila. She goes to pretty much all of them as far as I can tell so maybe she'd know.

I agree on the Jamila suggestion. She seems to know where Bono is speaking way before anyone else does. She's really very nice and approachable also.

And then complains about being poor. Hm, I wonder where all her money goes!

I highly object to being not only directly referred to in a thread in which I was not an active participant by the first person who raised my name in this thread, but then to be the brunt of a very callous and rude comment by a poster who has no knowledge of my current situation in life.

I have reported this as abuse to the mods.

I ask for no one to raise my name negatively in a thread in which I am not involved.

You would not like the same treatment for yourself.

Please keep your noses in your own business.

Axver, that comment was not only out of line but rude and none of your business. Sometimes you really don't know when to refrain from spouting off about people on these boards and I am tired of reading it but not afraid to say it like many people are.

Perhaps it's best you stick to quoting your facts and data about U2 which I admit you are highly knoledgable on, and leave the personal jabs and comments to yourself.

What is your problem? Your personal attacks against others are tiresome and totally uncalled for. Do you not understand that the mods are constantly warning you about your rude and insulting comments? Do you realize that one day you are going to wake up and not be able to access this forum? My patience is wearing thin with you.

With due respect, I dont see anything wrong with liv luv's or Carek's comments.

Uh, ok....nevermind then, I'll retract my original statement if you are offended and consider it negative when someone refers to you as being the most knowledgeable about something: No one ask Jamila for any information about Bono and his speaking engagements unless it's in a thread she starts about herself. Better?

Seriously, you over react to EVERYTHING here! If it's none of our business that you are active in the ONE campaign and have the most info about Bono's speaking engagements, then why do you post threads about each one in three or four forums at a time? I honestly can't figure you out.....

Aside from the fact Master Axver is a walking talking U2 data machine I don't understand why he hasn't been blocked from this forum yet. I also believe Jamila was referring to the uncalled for comment Axver made, not to what I said or to what LivLuv said.

Perhaps she would do well to express herself more clearly in the future then, because I read her comments several times and what I got is that she was pissed off at everyone.

that's how I read it, too. Although I re-read it like 5 times to make sure I'm not slipping in the English comprehension department

btw I snorted orange juice out of my nose reading this thread.

true

Well whenever he speaks I'll be sure to listen... unless he plans to say something beverage-snort inducing in which case I'm out
