hahaha...
I don't think keeping the rage flowing would be wise... best thing is to ignore them...

You're right but there are some giant tools in the online U2 community. On U2 message boards 24/7,
frittering their lives away. The fact someone would take the time to write an email and complain
about this is absurd.

I say shine a light on them.

Let us point and laugh.

No, thanks. That would be stooping to their level.

By the way, I really thought the announcement would come today. Bono and Edge showed up on Irish TV last night, so that was sort of their "re-entry" into public view, and making an announcement today would've been smart as a follow-up to the TV performance. Now I'm guessing it'll be next Monday. The rumor we heard involves something happening on Christmas day, so if that's still the plan, they can't wait much longer.....

Woo hoo, very exciting, Christmas Day!!!  Hmm, I know it's just a rumor and they keep making us wait, but I can't help being excited about this little tid bit you just gave us M2!  That would be awesome if they were under my Christmas tree!!!!!  :D (Although I don't think my husband would be very happy  :P )

Christmas Day, news on Christmas Day, that would be pretty good although thats in a week.

I was really expecting news today because of u2spain, but all I saw was a fake tracklisting nobody could read.  >:(

You're stoking the fire again, Matt.  ;)

But at least you used the word "rumor" this time so maybe everyone won't blow things out of proportion. (Sure they will.)

BTW, I risked my life to buy U2: A Diary last week.  Yep, I went into Southcenter Mall in Tukwila to buy it at Border's.  ;D

I believe that was pre-taped a week ago or so.

First, welcome back from wherever you went. :)

Second, thank you for the kind words. The staff actually runs the place. I'm mostly a traffic cop.

Yep, back on the 7th. But no one saw it until last night, so following up 24 hours later with the big announcement would've been smart.

If only there was something out there that let us know what the band were doing on any given day...something like that would be so cool. Anyone have any ideas?   :P

Yeah like U2Watch, or U2Cam, that would be nice. Or in the days following up to the announcement U2 will inform us what they are doing or something similar.
