Wow. You pick up on loads of stuff guys... 

I have no idea what Bono's rambling about most of the time. All that leather is too distracting 😇 

 

Is the leather telling you what to do? ;)

Personally, I think it's all about the drums.

Leather and drums. Yes. That... What were we talking about? 🤣

What I wrote about the n word comes from living thirty minutes north of Kenosha.  Wauwatosa, which is six miles from me, was barricaded by a called up National Guard for a while a short time ago. Those protests have been happening daily for months. The sheriff in Kenosha is warning armed militias from showing up at the polls on Tuesday for our election. Protests are passing my apartment, with megaphone shouting F the police. They are not being stopped to dispel tension.  I did not mean to stir up anything.

I meant none when I reacted to what you wrote.  I think it was right for them to edit out the n word.

This stream is free.  If you have a problem with what they did, go find whatever version it is that you are missing and do what you have to do.  You called them lazy bastards.  I'm not sure if you meant U2 or the people who work for them.  Either way, I take offense.

The 'n' word is so offensive that you could not type it for fear of reprisal. That should speak for itself.

How can this speak for itself if there is censorship? And what about freedom of speach, is it illigal in USA or the Western civilisation to speak out your mind? 

Look what happenes right now in France, it’s all about the liberty of expression and freedom of speach. 

I was shocked when I heard that beep instead of the original word, it is trully non sense to remove it!

Those who are offended by that word should not listen to the record, no one is forcing them.

What's happening in France is about sick people doing sick things. Nothing else. The lack of humanity can't be justified by ANYTHING.

I don't see any censorship in this, I only see a mark of respect. And don't @ me that the word was there in the first place. Society evolved and thank god for that. There are many things that were borderline acceptable, or disregarded maybe, 20 years ago. And I am so very glad mentality changed enough that this kind of editing is now a thing.

'La liberté des uns s'arrête là où celle des autres commence.' That's a thing from France that is worth remembering. 

And finally, and I'll stop there - it's their material! There could be a digitally added unicorn farting rainbows on that heart stage that I wouldn't question it. Their show, their choice. Why are we even discussing this? 

Stop arguing, just embrace the gift they're giving us. They're worst things in this world than a U2 concert. 

(That's what happen when I don't drink coffee Adam..)

Mais de laquelle liberte est-ce que tu parles? 

Using a word or another it doesn’t mean affecting others people liberty, on the worst case it affects their feelings which is another different thing.

The society evolved? Reality demonstrate it is the other way around, the things are going into the wrong direction, the Western civilisation is falling apart, you just don’t realise it yet.

It is a diagrace that U2 are now ashame of what they didn’t really did at all 20 years ago and they became so politically correct. 

U2 use to be a rebel band, agaist the mainstream, unfortunately they are now exact the opposite of that. It’s their age, I suppose. Not The Edge.

Yes, it is their piece of art and they can change it as they want to, but latelly they became more catholic than the Pope and this is not a good thing.

This is my point of view, I don’t need you to agree with, as I Said it is about freedom of speach.

I'm writing it now, he said it 19 years ago, as a reference to other song. See the difference, by any chance? Today I'd be banned even if I quoted frontman of the band because of which we're all here. However, the word is still used in movies and other art productions, so hold your horses boy. And please read what I wrote. I started with stating that they could cut out the whole rant, if they didn't want this word on the official release. But you decided to ignore this part, right? It was easier to hold to one word and jump on emotions, how predictable.

Nevertheless, it's a lazy release promoted with bunch of lies (i.e. "we picked songs form some of the best shows", which is actually the release we have since 2001).
