  • I love the smell of fresh forum killspam.
Gang, this is the NEWS & RUMORS section of the web site. It's for posting news & rumors, coincidentally.

It's NOT the place for starting new threads that:

- share your opinions on the new songs/album
- talk about the new song lyrics
- ask about album covers
- ask about ANYTHING, for that matter :)

Please use this board ONLY to post news & rumors. And please always include a source when posting news or rumors, including a link if one is available. Thanks gang!

I think part of the problem is people need to READ before posting as well.  The "News & Rumors" section is the first clickable link under "U2", so people come here first to post without reading sometimes. :)

The newbies especially - they can't be bothered to read the rules (same thing for me when I entered - speaking from experience  ;)). I don't blame em. If they wasnt to join discussions that badly then they would ignore these things.

Some people get too excited, especially with the album coming out, they forget to see the rules.

Matt, I'm sorry - I posted a new entry in the News & Rumours section related to the tour and someone had already posted in the correct area!

As somebody mentioned earlier, some people are just going to post under the first heading they see.  So perhaps General U2 Discussion should be moved to the top of the list.

I have to THINK before posting?  Well that's ridiculous.   ;D
