I admit, my heart skipped a beat when I read this, but hopefully this rumor is just that: a rumor.

Also, Nelly Furtado kindda looks like Courtney Cox, but it's none of our business anyway...besides, wasn't Adam supposed to have had a big engagement party during the Olympics? See, lotsa people with time on their hands.

Shut this thread down!!!11

This is most likely the most respectable U2 message board in the world, hence why threads get closed and/or edited

If you want to read a bunch of garbage and slander against the band, go to one of the billion other message boards that are nothing but crap.



No offense to you whatsoever BostonAnne, you just wanted some answers and there's nothing wrong with that.

Sorry if you felt insulted BostonAnne, but in all actuality, I have voiced my dislike of Zootopia on numerous occasions having nothing to do with rumours like this. I simply don't like it. I've tried it and found it seriously lacking.

But to each his/her own

Boston Anne, there was definately nothing directed at you, but I have read so many vicious things in Zootopia that it is a total turn off. In fact sometimes it really upsets me.

Its probably what you say that since its the band's official site it attracts a lot of weird sickos.

For me the bad really outways the good on that board.

Sicy,

What's kind of funny about your statement (which I find true, that this is the best run U2 site out there) is that the band's own site don't censor (I like that word instead of "closed and/or edited") such posts. Why is this? No mods? Or a policy against such a thing?

??

Anyhoo, I've just broken my promise of not coming back for a couple of hours.

Anyone suggest some kind of self inflicting punishment?

Mark

They dont have mods.

That is a poorly run site imo.. and considering its "official".. thats pretty sad.

For instance... this thread on zootopia:
http://zootopia.u2.com/WebX?50@4.69F...Jj^1@.2e0cd911

wtf?

Interference has over 110 people at any one time either reading or posting or both. Zootopia usually has about 10.

Sicy, I noticed that thread earlier tonight. I have never seen anything that offensive on the board and wish it would go away!

Be careful about linking to the Zootopia board. I linked to a thread there once and someone here told me that they ended up posting with my nickname!

It's enough to start a mod appreciation thread here!

I just wanted to point out that the whole thing about Larry being pissed about Bono's work outside the band was taken out of context recently. It was from an interview when ATYCLB was being recorded! The interview just happened to replay recently and has everyone up in arms now.

Thanks! I made sure I am not logged in.
That would suck.

Puh-lease.

If Courtney Cox was potentinally having an affair, Ted Casablanca from E! Online would have caught it. You can check there, but I know you won't find anything. If Ted can't see it, no one can. And the Larry thing is defintly taken out of context.

The band is fine. They just need a vacation.

Boston Anne...in no way I was putting down Zootopia...not at all...and what I meant is some people like to stir up crap on boards...it happens everywhere...on the PJ board I go to..some non-fans will come on just to crap on everyone....happens all the time. Hell...I'm sure it even happens here...I'm just not here everyday to catch it.
Peace to the Zootopians....I don't want to fight with anyone...I like the format here better. I glanced at Zootopia and found it hard to use...LOL..I'm a computer moron!!!LMFAO!!
Peace y'all.
Let's just hope the rumour isn't true....
Love Autumn

People! Get A grip! Don't let something posted on a message board be treated as gospel truth. If the band ever does break up, your not going to learn about it first on the internet.
Relax, take a deep breath, grab a beer if you want and sit down. Just because the Elevation tour looks to be officially over does not mean the band is. These type of rumors have been happening actually since the end of the Unforgettable Fire tour. Give the band a break and let them relax and make the next album.

What I think is the truth:
the band is tired and is getting over-exposed so they are going to take holiday for a while, be w/families, Bono will be into his activism(main reason) and unfortunately, there is not enough money to be made for them in Australia(part of the tour) so they said forget it.....weren't they confirmed to play with Oasis?

Zootopia does have mods actually. One is called Sysop and s/he has deleted threads. S/he has said they have done this and I know for a fact that threads are delted/moderated because one of mine disappeared!

That is the person that abuse is reported to.

I dont believe they actually "moderate" the board if they allow some of those threads to stay there, i.e. the one about penis size.

U2 would never break up because of Adam's alleged affairs. Wasn't that one of Bono's ten commandments: it's ok to break up over artistic reasons but never women or money? Something like that.
