Hmm, how about

'U2 fans against exploitation by u2.com'?

Or instead of exploitation, it could be ineptitude, poor service etc, or all of them?

I guess it just has to be a simple title, but one which gets the point across.

How about "How Long Must We Sing This Song?" If that won't work, then I'd go with "This Fanclub is a Cannibal, This Fanclub is a Thief."

I'm only partially serious.

"There's been a lot of talk about this next petition. Maybe too much talk."

Oh wait, that's a bit point-defeating.
I actually kind of like your first one exile. But i think really, the title needs to refer to u2.com and fan dissatisfaction explicitly.

A take on a previously mentioned suggestion; This Fanclub is a Cannibal, U2.com is a Thief.

Think I noticed a typo in the letter; it appears to say that the Coldplay website has the Pearl Jam fanclub.

I like that one! How does everyone else feel?

I should get a byline since it was mostly my idea. It's all about me, you know.

I think this would be a good title for the petition.

I can't tell the difference between ABC news, Hill Street Blues and U2.com stealing money from the fans, new and the old.

all those fan club memberships just to get pre-sales which don't guarantee you anything add up to more than the premium you'd pay a broker.

just sayin'

turns out you can only have 50 characters.

how about

'The Fanclub is a Cannibal - make u2.com better'?

or

'The Fanclub is a Cannibal - u2.com, fans need more'

or

'The Fanclub is a Cannibal - u2.com not good enough'

feel free to keep adding suggestions, i do like "the fanclub is a cannibal start tho. unfortunately with the 50 character limit we wont be able to fit in a thank you to exile for providing this line. i think we need to have something in there thats a bit more informative about what its about hence all the different second parts ive tried (none of which i think are particularly wonderful).

and then for the url maybe just You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

I like either of the first two suggestions for a title.
