Wow. 4 posts and 4 deletions. No unfettered rage - no profanity - just facts and "poof" gone, along wioth simailr threads. Guess this is a feel good only place. What is enjoyable is knowing that come Monday, I'll have as long as I want to talk about this during my radio show, a place where free speech is still encouraged, not feared. Anyway, I'll give this another post before it too is gone:
This time change was announced in April!!! The U2 announcement makes it sound like it's the Jets and/or the NFL's fault. Not to mention changing the time of a secular event for religious reasons? Any religion? I thought this was America, not the middle east.
So, yeah. 50-thousand plus having to at least change plans. How many are going to lose money from prior reservations, air fare etc? Why wasn't this caught and or avoided months ago?
With few regional Stadium shows they have to realize people are traveling hundreds or even thousands of miles to see them. A Friday to a Wednesday is a huge switch.
Out of respect? Sure.
There it is my oh-so scary post - again.
You were taking pot shots at the mods, as I stated before, if you want to complain, go for it as long as it if respectful.
As for the moderators, we do not control the ticketing or touring, and so taking out your anger at us is unfair to us. Also, you might want to take a look at other threads, as they were NOT deleted, they were all merged into one giant thread so that we can monitor it more easily. The only thread that was removed, was the ticket exchange one for anti-semitic and racist comments.
So if you are going to take pot shots at us, at least get your facts straight, ok?
Pot shots? Pointing out that a thread over 9-pages long was "deleted" is a "pot shot"? A thread that you just admitted was removed? Sounds like my facts are/were straight. And I'm not taking out any "anger" at you. I'm perfectly calm.
I didn't see any racist or anti-semitic comments, just a lot of people who are out hundreds, even thousands of dollars, for a 3-hour change in schedulethat was announced all the way back in April. In return a nice "regret the inconvenience". How nice.
I'll grant you that I'm a bit oversensitive to the suppression of free speech especially in these overly politically correct times. As a long time U2fan I can remember so many of Bono's on stage "rants" - words that would have landed him in jail in some countries, but not here. At least notyet.
So, I apologize. This isn't an assault on you "U2 moderator". It was not my intention at all.
