Hello Hello!!


December 2nd, 2006

The nerve of some people @ 04:25 am

kaishijinn:
I'm currently feelin: determined

Hey mods, if this isn't allowed, delete.


I've got a bit of an issue here.


There's this site, u2shirts.com.

Some of you may know it, may have ordered a shirt.


But, you see that red seven shirt?


That's a shirt I made.

That's a picture I took.

Only, that isn't my site.



I'm not in here acting like I'm the only one allowed to make that shirt, but this guy made nice with me over ebay, asked if he could trade a couple of his shirts for one of the red sevens, didn't even buy anything, and now he's riding on my work, including stealing my picture.


Just a heads up of a shifty character out there.

I'd be sure to let him know how you feel. On the page they say it is for fans by fans, but that is just a load of crap when your story is told. It should really say "for fans who would like to help some other fans make money".

I find it completely unacceptable the way it has been done. Had he been honest with you about it - then it would be something else. Stealing designs, photos and everything else is not a good thing to do. Sue the f**ker ;)

lol Well, I'm kinda doing that whole "make money"...


Then again it started with just making it for myself, and friends asked for one, and it's gone on and on from there.


Unfortunately, the shirt design wasn't mine to begin with.

wish it was.

Dream #1: Have Edge wear one of my shirts.

*butts in*
Yeah, but you made it, so you're allowed to make money from it
Plus, if he had payed for it, but no
At least in my book trading is not the same as paying

BTW, this is AnaCarolina *waves*
Gonna friend you, ok?

I'm sorry to hear it. :| And I really liked your Edge shirts, too! I assume you've contacted him? Although I can't see how that will stop him. Ugh. :/

This does, however, remind me of the shifty activities of someone in this community with regards to the selling of shirts made from a design I made from Bono's ONE shirt over a year ago. While some people got their shirts, I and a handful of others saw our $40 vanish, and no amount of emails has elicited even something of an apology let alone a refund. I'd been debating whether to even post about it because people would be all "whatever, old news, move on!" but fuck, money is money and I didn't get to wear that fucking t-shirt to my concerts last month, let alone getting it twelve months ago.

You should post it. And don't be nice about hiding the names either. It would be interesting to see how many people did not receive shirts and/or refunds.

I remember that. And plathegreat is right to not hide the names and just post it. I was the first to question her about the shirts in a mass email and got shit for it from everyone. When the shirts started to NOT appear everyone was up in arms. Thank God, I hadn't paid for mine yet. All her excuses are crap.

Although I did get my shirt(s)... I am sure you are not the only one who didn't. I vote with the others - make a post and don't hide names. I would be beyond pissed if I paid $40 for a shirt I never got.

I say post about it.

I got my two shirts but saw a number of people who didn't get theirs. Repeated attempts to get answers were either met with excuses that pointed the finger elsewhere, or, more often, silence.

I said a few things there and people even had the nerve to complain about others continuing to talk about it, like the fact they got their shirts and others didn't meant nothing to them.

In the end, anyone who didn't get their shirts should receive a refund if they can't get their shirts or don't want them now. It doesn't matter who dropped the ball - responsibility lies solely in the hands of the one who offered them. If someone failed her, she needs to make it right one way or another.

I had also hoped to wear my shirt to my concert in Toronto over a year ago. Arg.
I posted it about it in January but unfortunatley no one seemed very concerned.

Thanks for your words! Good to know I have fans out there, too. ;D


That really sucks.
esp. since that shirt takes a whole $8 or so to make the right way. $6 if you just print it on American Apparel (What's the point of printing that shirt on a Hanes or what have you?) as is.

I would email that piece of slime... I can't believe the shit people pull.

Make sure you go over to the U2.com posting boards, the yahoo U2 lists, the u2 news groups --- anywhere and everywhere u2 related on the net you can find and post about what a scum bucket he is.

Ooh, I didn't think about the Yahoo lists. Thanks a bunch.

Any idea where I'd post this in Interference?

I already e-mailed him to one of the emails on the page, but my initial (Very calm, I like to think) threat has gone unanswered.


So, I e-mailed his whois site info email and used his listed name. :D Threatened to report him to his webpage provider.

Thanks for your help!

I'd post it anywhere on interference -- maybe if there is a board called "bad traders" you could just do what ya did here asking if it was ok to post something of that nature... use the same type of post and ask those mods if its alright if not pleas4e let you know which board you can post it on?
