Yeah best of luck to them. We are going to continue doing what we are doing here. We have a great community here built up not just over two months but over many years - thanks to atu2. We all left home a couple of months back, but we are staying at the new place and focusing on allowing all dialogue thatís in a spirit of honesty and respect. Sadly, honesty isnít always positive and uplifting so negative comments are always going to be welcomed here along with positive ones as long as they follow rule number 1: respect. That respect includes respect to atu2, whose mods do this without pay.

If some of you chose to return to atu2, thatís fine. If some of you choose to post at both places thatís fine too.

The one thing I donít want to see is people posting positive light and airy on atu2 then coming over here specifically to say the things you know would get you banned over there.

If we become the no holes barred u2 forum, we will fail. If we are the balanced forum we will succeed

Bottom line - respect. Myself and Tumbling Dice are having a knock down brawl over Brexit at the minute In the political section of the site and we disagree vehemently over it, but Iíll still buy him a drink if heís right and I am wrong. An Tha and I disagree quite strongly on where POP belongs in U2s catalog but we can still joke about it and regularly do.

Thereís plenty of room for multiple U2 fan sites, as long as they follow the bands ethos and respect each other.

Yeah - there is no "us versus them" crap or any desire from the admin and mods here to have some sort of back and forth "against" atu2....

Atu2 will be run how it is run by the people who run it and we will do our thing as a part of the community here.

I am sure there will be people who will post on both sites - and of course people are absolutely free to post where they feel they want to - well I am not because I am banned from atu2  ;)

Hopefully people enjoy what we have all built here and will continue to do so....this place (or any other forum IMO) is only as good as it's members make it.....this place has been a joy to be a part of thanks to the members who make this little corner of the internet a great place to hang out in.

Good luck to atu2.

No worries just flagging as it was posted about when you set up. Plus seen a couple of you guys hanging out there so thought it was ok to highlight.

Thanks for letting us know, we wish the best for @u2 and hope they have a place that is stronger and better than before...and that the @u2 members are happy there. That being said, we're all happy here and are in it for the long haul. We've been around for nearly 2 months now and have proven that respectful, open, unrestricted discussion is possible if we all just respect one another's opinions, even when we disagree.  :)
