Totally Disgraceful......

Recommended Posts

Of course there's nothing wrong asking for problems to be addressed if your personal expectations are not met but I doubt there will be a time when everyone is happy with the site because everyone has different expectations of it, some will be happy, some won't, some will stay, some will leave. I don't feel I would be happier with the site/Zoo if people who were unhappy hadn't left because I still enjoy the site with the people who still want to be here.

Mate, that's not what I asked/ meant

 

Of course peole come and go, that's to be expected on any site.

 

You say you enjoy the community.

 

Wouldn't you enjoy the community more if those who were unhappy and left, were happy and stayed?

 

Is a few hundred satisfied forum participants not a more appealing prospect than twenty happy ones?

Would you not prefer a busy forum than one where the tumbleweeds chat to the invisible man?

 

I think you're missing the point about "people who want to be here"

 

We all have someone who we enjoy chatting to in here, that's why we still participate

 

Believe it or not, most if not all of the upset paying members "want to be here"

 

That's why we joined in the first place.

i get what you're saying, mick! and i can very well imagine how the people who cant get in must feel, cause for couple of days in october last year, i had no access to my home. because of those people i signed your thread.

but i do have a problem with the way things are put in some posts.... like adjana says its fine to demand the things you expect cause you paid for them. but it should be fine too, to just be happy with this site....

you say:" ofcourse it is!" but some posters said/insinuated that the ones who didnt complain were either just to chickenshit to do so or else member of the 'u2-can-do-no-wrong-club'... it seems that many 'old' members have a prob with acknowledging another view but their own, when it comes to this tour, album, bono's charitywork, and finally this site. and thats a shame....

Heya Babs!

 

Mate, I am happy that you and several others genuinely enjoy U2.com in it's current format.

 

Obviously when people are upset, many things are often said. And I'll agree that a few of us have gone a bit hard in this thread - I'll happily put my hand up there.  (I still think Bono looks hot as Lady Ga Ga.....)

 

There's nothing at all wrong with enjoying every aspect of the band, the charity work etc etc.

 

But there is many a U2-can-do-no-wrong style fan getting around - and that's a different thing than being like yourself Babs - you're just a satisfied U2 fan, and that's great.

 

That being said, I wouldn't apply that title to anyone who has clearly stated that they are totally satisfied with the site for whatever reason and has added to this debate with that veiwpoint.

 

In fact, it's appreciated, and the whole point of a forum, is being able to state your specific veiwpoint respectfully, and expect respect in return.

 

Like I've said already, there's nothing at all wrong with being happy about U2.com as it stands.

 

But being told by many to "just leave, or cancel your membership" just doesn't work for me.

 

And i ask anyone out there, satisfied or not,

 

Wouldn't you like this place more if it was better than it is now?

 

And to those who think it's great now - wouldn't it be even better?

As always Mick, you rocked those responses to djscottu2 and Anjana. You see that Barbara says the same as I about you being respectful and friendly in your posts :P When people get kicked in the teeth by some of the other passionate posters in this thread, they just put their fingers in their ears and leave the thread. Your approach is much more effective.

And cheers :)

 

But it's no good having a debate on the matter if  we don't allow all sides to have their say.

 

Even if everyone knows that me, Basher, Mac and the gang are right.

as long as you both leave off that sexy ass!!! laugh.gif

 

and to be serious just been reading through the last couple of pages, and it is good to see so many different opinions but all coming together to agree that at times the fans need to be treated better. I am one who is happy etc... at the moment but i can see that there coud be improvements to make more people happy and me even happier!

and hope you've all had a good weekend!
