Are you a REAL FAN??
« on: April 03, 2011, 07:52:18 PM »
There's so much confusion these days over what constitutes a REAL FANTM.

So it's high time that we did some scientific research into exactly how many REAL FANTMs we have on this site.

Most U2 fans are an honest bunch, even the sellmyownmothertobeinfrontofyouintheGApit ones, so I think a poll is the best way to conduct this highly scientific research.

Please confirm whether you are a REAL FANTM or not by selecting a voting option.

I do appreciate the efforts you are going to, AB.
It's nice to see someone taking this stuff seriously.

I got my official REAL FANTM certification from the Propaganda fan club back when it existed.

I don't like Red Light or a lot of October, so I guess I'm not a REAL FANTM.

I have been obsessed with U2 since I first saw the cover of the War album on a classmates desk one morning at school in 1983, paid thousands of dollars on seeing them live 42 times all over the world over the last 25 years or so and I own every album and single ever released on cd and vinyl.

However, according to a lot of young fans on here, because I do not care much for The Joshua Tree, do not like the songs Where The Streets Have No Name, Pride, With Or Without You, City Of Blinding Lights or Elevation, and most definitely do not like ATYCLB, HTDAAB or NLOTH very much, I can not be a real fan.

Oh and I absolutely love Pop, ESPECIALLY Miami.

So, I voted no  ;)

My evil twin brother voted for yes. Well, i'm not. I hate them. They suck!
Seriously, like Zoost said, i don't care much for popular songs. There are some that i like and some that i don't.
I HATE Pride and i do not like Vertigo. My favorite song is Acrobat and my least favorite U2 record is HTDAAB. Does that mean i'm not a fan?
I voted for yes  ;D/size]

Is 30 years of loving the band enough to get me in  :D  Yes, I am a real fan. (and no one is going to tell me I'm not  :P :D).
