U2 Fan Fail

July 16, 2010

I love U2 fans. I’ve spent the better part of two decades defending U2 fans (whenever needed) to others who think we’re all a bunch of Bono-worshipping nutcases. In the mid-1990s, I almost wrote a book extolling the virtues and awesomeness of U2 fans.

U2 fans are, for the most part, Good People. “Cool U2 fans” as a percentage of “all U2 fans” is a much higher number than “cool people” as a percentage of “all people.” So you can imagine my disappointment and general WTF? reaction to seeing this in the daily analytics report for U2diary.com, the web site for my book:



Some U2 fan did a web search hoping to find and download a free, digital copy of my book. S/He wanted to steal the book, basically; to get it for free.

Pretty sure no such digital copy/torrent exists, so I hope this “U2 fan” (using the term loosely) instead found the section of U2diary.com where I’ve published almost 10 book samples.
