What is the ideal number of Mercy threads?

I really think we need to settle this once and for all... Clearly some feel that there are not enough threads about mercy, the new lyrics, the amount of saliva bono expelled whilst singing it, and the levels of indigestion suffered during the 2nd verse.

So help us out people, perhaps we can achieve consensus.

How many Mercy threads do we need?

I'll say 14.

 ;D. good question. i'm glad they've played it to stop the endless pleading for it on this site. do you think they'll play acrobat for us now?  :D

i think the song title is ironic in that we now need a bit of 'mercy' from mercy on these pages.

I'd be quite happy with one, entitled "U2 play new song Mercy; Every Breaking Wave Is Fifty Times Better"  :D

One is sufficient. I think we're a little overboard right now.  ::)

Does this count as a Mercy thread?  ???

I wanted pi, but since it wasn't an option, I chose one.

No. This is NOT a Mercy thread. This is just a tribute.
