I can't remember when I last posted here, a long time ago for sure. But after reading Matt's current OTR column, I felt compelled to respond to this:
"The worst thing is that one fan who was at the Dublin event confronted Aaron G. on Sunday to angrily gripe about Adam's appearance in Cleveland -- a confrontation that happened in front of Aaron's family and brought his youngest son to tears. Can you imagine?!? That's not how U2 fans should act toward one another. Hell ... it's not how anyone should act toward one another."
I was disgusted to read this, absolutely appalled! Should we not instead be thrilled that, yet again, an actual band member has acknowledged this site's quality and dedication by participating enthusiastically as he did? U2, collectively and individually, owe us (the fanbase) absolutely nothing, so for Adam to take the time to Skype chat at the Cleveland event should be considered a fantastic coup for @U2, as well as offering some hard evidence of the band's 2017 plans. Whoever that 'fan' in Dublin was, he or she should be ashamed of behaving in that way. Get over yourself and consider the bigger picture!
