maybe, but i think if anyone was manipulated, it was sad gullible people.
did anyone REALLY think someone out there was going to supply the world
and their dog with free copies of U2 material?

get real - posting tapes is expensive stuff, especially when you start talking
about a significant number of packages. *shakes head*

i dont think any sentient semi-intelligent person would just wake up
one morning and think "i know - i'll hammer out free tapes AND i'll
pay the postage!" ... :)

well, granted, if the entire event was a hoax, i myself would have
ended the thing before the "address" stage..

hehehahahahah! cmaaannn.. seriously - what are the chances of you emailing an
axe murderer? really.. ? about 0.001% ? fair risk i say - thats the risk you take
whenever you send your details over the internet.

this axe-murderer argument IMO is just plain silly.

>Im not saying ANYONE is..

oh.. im an axe murderer and im ok
i chop all night and i chop all day
i chop up girls i eat their flesh.. i go to the lavatory....

hehehehehe... :)

if anyone was REALLY paranoid about sending their home address out, they
should have used a PO box. lots of people do it for precisely this reason.

and anyway - anyone who hammers out their email address to a "free tapes!"
advert needs their head analysed, if you ask me. i think it was a bit
obvious this was a joke - taken perhaps a little far, but any reasonable
person should have seen thru it.

thats my thoughts anyway. :) flame at will. :)
(hope Will doesnt mind.. hehehehehehehe).. :) catcha! :)
