Hello Hello!!

Hrmmmm. @ 05:55 pm

carobanano:
A poll for you all: Did Edge REALLY post here and here?

On one hand, I do't think Interference would lie, and risk ruining their rep. On the other hand, Edge does not strike me as the multiple-exclamation-points type of person. (Not to mention that he wouldn't spell "disagree" wrong!) There was also a lot of speculation about that interview with U2.

What do you think?

And "a lot."

I don't think it's him.

At first I was susceptible to believing it was him (why would we want to think the site is lying to us?) but the way that he posted, what he wrote I mean, seemed too fishy. It just didn't seem very "Edge-like." Too-good-to-be-true. Standard answers. Calling someone "love." And the one thread he made, the very next reply was Elvis...gee that's convenient.

Not to mention that Elvis was supposedly out having a life the day that Edge posts...yeah mmm hmmm

Maybe it's cynical, but tell me, WHY would Edge post there of all sites? Instead of waiting for the new U2.com site to post there...that would be more believeable b/c it's official.

Also, Elvis and Interference are needing money right now for a new server or whatever. They just got a new one, and then some poster said "if the whole band posts you'll have so much traffic and need a new server" (something to that effect) and he replied something like "oh we already need another new one."

More fishy smells.

Just like that Exclusive Interview with U2 didn't quite feel right or U2-ish, this doesn't feel quite right or Edge-y.

I mean, how are we really supposed to trust them? I also read that Elvis has pretended to have the band post or interview on the site in the past....

It seems very shady.

That's my feeling.

Fake, for all of the reasons that abelfan gave, and also the grammar style - either the poster's first language isn't English, or they're relatively young.

I'm with everyone else, I really don't think it was him. Especially since Joel has pulled stuff like this in the past. I think he's just doing the Edge act to get more attention for his site. The whole thing sounds fishy to me.

oops i was too busy chuckling there i didnt give my reasons why i dont believe it was him.

u2 have had nothing to do with interference since i have been there, that's voer 3 years now, well i dont think they have unless i was sleeping. now, all of a sudden u2 are posting messages, holding an interview AND the edge has joined. in the space of a week....... har har.

u2 also have nothing to do with their official site's forum (from what i read from interference folk).

it doesn't seem very plausible.

I believe it's Edge and I can't be bothered arguing with those who don't think it's him.

'Not to mention that he wouldn't spell "disagree" wrong!'

So the man isn't allowed to make typos?

'There was also a lot of speculation about that interview with U2.'

That honestly baffled me. I guess that everywhere, someone's going to doubt the plainly obvious, though.

It's bull. Pure bull. It can't be The Edge... I'd think he would know how to make a post sound a bit smarter, you know? I'd have expected him to write something a bit more complex, and long.

Pfft. It annoys me, Joel is taking advantage of us.

I don't believe that's him for a second. Obviously I'm not familiar with Edge's online style, but I *highly* doubt it would be anything like that, and why would he bother posting stuff like that on there anyway?  No way is that for real.

Exactly. I highly doubt it's real. I'm not about to name names, but "Edge" reminds me quite a bit of, er, the poster mentioned in starsgoblue's reply to the first thread you linked to.

You really don't want to ask me my opinion of Interference. I've dealt with the owner of the site (in person, no less), yada yada yada.

I don't even have to go and view those posts to know it wasn't The Edge ;-)

I'm sure it's not and that it's some silly stunt to get attention. The Edge has an album-release and world tour coming up...I highly doubt he has time to post on (one of a bajillion) U2 fan forums, especially when, if he's going to post at all, it would make more sense that he'd post on his band's official site.

Something similar to this happened right before ATYCLB was released. It's not The Edge.

There ought to be some way for this 'The Edge' character to prove their legitimacy...

Btw, what was this incident that happened right before ATYCLB?

I've heard that Joel (Elvis) had hacked into Bono's email account.. he publically admitted it and apologized. I forget what the other incidents were. I think they had to do with him (or someone) impersonating band members or leading the members into believing that Bono's daughters were members of Interference.

I do not think it is The Edge. I've been an Interferencer (im U2LA) since 2000 and I happen to know that they faked The Edge before and that really pissed alot of people off. So unfortunately, this kind of shit has happend before and it was BS, so I just dont trust the source.

As far as the interview, I believed that was real. BUt now, I am questioning that in light of Interference's need of a new server. I just...dont know.

I mean axver, were you aware that this has happend before? If someone lies to you once, will you believe the same lie later, even if it is true? It's the whole Boy who Cried Wolf thing. And I'm under-impressed with The Edge's comments. He's not saying much of anything really. LIke "oh the tracklist from all the other sites are wrong" but not offering any info.

Now I am interested in knowing if the INterference "interview" was real or not. I bet all of this could be cleared up by a simple call or email to Principle Management, the people who manage U2.

This whole debate over whether or not The Edge is really posting at Interference is driving me crazy. The fact that nothing has been "officially" declared just adds fuel to the fire. At this point I choose to believe that it really is Edge that's posting there. However, I do have a few doubts. I'm very 50/50 on this, I guess I should say.

I don't blame people who believe, I don't blame people who don't believe. I am still moderating at and loving Interference for the same reasons I always have...good music, good fans.

Since you are a moderator, is there anything that you know about this situation or are you sworn to secrecy over this topic? I think it's very odd how there has not been anything "official" stated up to this point. The burgeoning amount of wink smilies that I see moderators (particularily from Sicy) posting are making me question its validity.
