I still think its the band and whoever else might have a legal interest in the recording that needs to explicitly give permission to make public this unique recording.  General comments Bono has made about bootlegs, that we are all well aware of, notwithstanding.  So Iím making no judgement on this Aaron guy.

My problem was the statement that he paid a lot for it so he may not want to share it.  Or if it was given to him and the band was cool with him sharing it, he still might choose not to because it is ďhisĒ.  But it seems none of us really know the facts including singnomore so probably not fair to pass judgement based on what may or may not happen with the recording eventually.

My point was really that its unrealistic to create a post inviting people to discuss a tape they canít listen to and then expect them not to discuss their frustration that they canít listen to it.

I reckon make it Moderator free and opt in, if the software allows.

There by the grace of God etc...

If you swim with the sharks when there's a sign up that says "beware of sharks" then you've not got anyone else to bail you out.

Thereís a definite appeal to that, but weíre hoping to prevent animosities that might develop in that sort of situation from spilling over into other parts of the site. Prior to the shut down, people would bring aggressive or aggrieved attitudes from political discussions into other discussions.

I'm sure nobody meant to be a douche and I'm sorry the exciting news turned sour, but yes, Aaron might want to examine his motivations for putting the fact of his purchase, and a teaser recording, out in public.

If he bought an object like a car, sure, he can tell his friends and post pic, but the car can't be shared without losing its value via overuse, inconvenience, damage, etc.

But a recording (audio or visual) of historical or cultural significance is a different matter. If he had bought a photograph of JFK kissing Marilyn Monroe and bragged about it and posted a zoomed in shot of JFK's left eye and a tuft of Marilyn's hair, people will wonder why he couldn't just show us the damn picture - or shut up about it if he didn't want to share it. He loses nothing by sharing the recording - his won't break or be less available to him - unless the value to him was just the ability to brag, and that's something worth examining in yourself.

Of course he doesn't have to share. But if he is going to keep it to himself, then he should keep it to himself.

Ibut yes no need for him to share the content and its not about him. Its about the recording.

Can you explain what you mean by this?

I was referencing comments above suggesting he was showing off etc.

Okay.  I think the problem is that if no one is going to be able to hear the tape, what is the point in even telling everyone about it?  So in the end the story (and your original post) is about him acquiring the tape, not the tape itself.  I mean, I get it if its a point of historical interest but U2 is barring sharing. But if its a matter of coming on here and congratulating someone on apparently being given something that they donít in turn want to share, then yeah, the story is probably going to end up being about ďhimĒ and not the recording.

Everyoneís entitled to a view - thatís not how I would see it but Iím probably looking at it through a different glass


Sure.  When the rest of us have heard the recording, and can therefore really actually discuss it Iím sure we will and the recording will then become the real story.  Thanks.
