Awesome! I will repost this link on their Facebook page. Bigger press names like Rolling Stone, Billboard, Q, and Spin will get wind pretty quick, watch.

It's the last 24 hours that has done it. One day ago there were only 290 signatures. In 24 hours it has exploded to 953. I hope everybody verifies their signature!

I wonder what changed?  ???
Whatever it was, it looks like it's finally taking on some momentum, this is really good.

Probably atu2 posting it on the front page, since that's how Spinner picked the story up. A lot of people don't check forums on any website, even to voice displeasure, so that front page update probably got a hell of a lot of people's attention - they would have been dissatisfied beforehand, but didn't know where to voice their displeasure. Now they do, and it's a hell of a jump as a result.

oh well, if it happens it happens. must say the articles interesting in that about 70% is copied and pasted straight from the petition.

yeah i was trying to figure out why it exploded all of a sudden then i realised it was on the main atu2.com page. i had underestimated how much effect that would have but it makes sense i spose.

It most certainly has increased!  I am sad actually that this had to be done, hoping it gets good results.

2 signatures until it hits 1000! Would like to know numbers of u2.com membership - that would be a good aim for number of signatures.

HAHA  :D

i also notice that on U2Achtung.com, the 'artist of the month' is radiohead...
I'm starting to think they're both just the same band... maybe we should post this petition on a radiohead forum?  ;D

Try not to pi*s them off too much though, doesn't send a good message if we are fighting amongst ourselves.

It is too bad it had to be done.  If Larry gets wind of it he might really get pi**ed off, hopefully with Live Nation and not the fans ;)
I don't want U2 to end up looking bad, it's the website and Live Nation that are the problem, but U2 or their management needs to address it.

I agree, but U2 need to pull their head out of the mud and put flowers in their place. It's their name being represented, look after it!

And that is FANTASTIC it got pulled onto the spinner site. Great work guys!
