Posting on Forum needs several correctly answered obstacles....
« on: November 26, 2016, 01:46:36 PM »
Hi, yeah I'm a newby here, but not at U2.com.... allow me a little criticism of the @U2 site, actually just your forums pages. Hard to believe that one must answer: a) an anti-bot type "pls enter scrabbled code here" + b) answer 4 knowledge U2 questions?? Seriously??? Get a grip pls., there are no bots trying to crash your @u2 forum pages!! + since when does one have to be a U2 fan to post a thought on a free U2 forum, yes even on a U2 dedicated site??
Don't get me wrong, I love your site, have been reading it for years & I think it is a great source of U2 info, I've also been a mega U2 fan for 37 years, but asking us everytime 4 knowledge questions just to post a reply? Again, Seriously???
Thx & keep up the good "non forum posting" work!!  ;)

Welcome to the forum, 789.

Before we instituted the U2 knowledge questions, we were getting about 10-15 spam registrations per day. Now we're getting about 2-3 per week. So while we appreciate your feedback, we have no intention to change the registration process.
