LET'S ALL AGREE THAT...
« on: February 12, 2009, 07:48:03 AM »

1) It's ok to have an opinion

2) It's ok to disagree with someone as long as you're not being abusive

3) It's ok to like U2

4) It's ok not to like U2

5) It's ok to like some things they do and not others

I agree.

And 6. It's NOT ok to attack someone's fandom because they disagree with you. :-\

i agree except on #4. because, personally, i signed up on this site because i am a fan of U2 and i love/like the band. and i expect that those who sign up here are always supportive of the band because this is a FANSITE. sorry, no offense meant, but that's how i feel.

I see where you're coming from but I welcome debate from anyone. It keeps the balance. There's nothing more boring than a load of music fans agreeing with eachother...

I agree. You post because your a fan and you want to talk with others fan's. Not with someone who want's to go on about how they don't like them or just for the sake of disagreing.
 Its good to have an opinion, but please don't troll about how you disagree.

Isnt that the idea of having an opinion? to be able to disagree or agree with whoever?

I think it's fine that someone comes on here and says 'I hate U2.'

I've often been abused for saying I think Bono's a complete d**k. But that doesn't mean I don't truly love some of their music.

I agree! Bono can be an ar*e sometimes.

But there's voicing your opinion and then there's being an ar*e about it.

you see, i don't like debating actually. it is stress for me. i feel good when everybody is positive. i have come to that age that to enjoy life more fully, is to lessen (if not eliminate) stress. for many years, i have debated within the organizations i belonged (in the form of brainstorming), and i am through with that. and, when i express my opinion here on something i don't agree on, it is because i can't take it anymore. i don't like my favorite band and everything about them being lashed out. because i know that Bono, Larry, Adam and Edge are great people but not perfect.

Yes - he should just stick to being a rock star.

I love people who get involved in campaigning but you can do it quietly and with some modesty (Springsteen, Yorke) and you can do it and be a complete embarrasment (Bono)...

I know it is really annoying. When you mention U2 they think of BONO.

I was watching a guitar documentry a while back and told my friend they were interveiwing the U2 guitarist.

And he said "Oh no Bono."

I was like "facepalm!"

Bono the one man band! :-) :-) lol
