We know people are going to talk about the new album. The album is being played on radio stations and is being streamed on mainstream web sites. BIG web sites, not just our fan sites. The album made me fall head over heels in love with the band again...HARD! And I know that if I want to, or have to scream it out, nothing will be able to restrain me from doing so. I am one sappy U2 fool. =)
Anyway.... for those of us who have heard the album and LOVE the album (or are possibly disappointed with it).... let us be as courteous as we possibly can to those fans who choose not to listen to the cd until it's release date.
PLEASE put any lyrics or big album spoilers, such as song discussions like "my fav's on the new cd are"..... etc..etc.. *behind* a cut tag marked with "ALBUM SPOILER"
The proper way to use the cut tag is in the FAQ, on this very page. Click me and learn. You know, as long as I've been a member of various U2 forums (since 1996/97) it *is* proper etiquette to do that. NG's, Wire (the *original*), Rewired, AOL boards, etc etc etc..... and so now -- here.
To the folks who choose not to listen and will appreciate the "spoiler" cut tag... Nicky, Annie, Janine and myself just want you to know that no matter what we (or anyone) request here people do not always do or appreciate what we (or anyone) has asked. They might decide to be total butt wipes and post a who new set of song lyrics just to make people feel bad. Then they will retort with us mods being referred to as "anal retentive assholes" when we remove the post. Be aware that in any community there will be trolls. Be aware that right now you will pretty much have to go into seclusion to not see something about the new cd that might spoil it for you. =\
We just want everyone here to be happy.
Ok... so I am done with that. I guess this is something that should have been brought up the very day the album leaked.
Thanks to johnny_ever for posting about this earlier.
