    Why do you suppose folks like Madeavlrh, MJ, Phil Spector et. al. are compelled to make posts suggesting they are in the know? Are they just lonely? Do they get off on the attention? Do they think people will remember them in all the excitement after The Announcement? Do they enjoy being lambasted? Don't ya think those lucky folks in the inner circle are off doing exciting enviable things instead of coming in here and seeing who gullible? If a person was fortunate enough to be in the know why would they reveal anything? What's to gain?

    I totally agree with the 'nothing to gain' sentiments bro. As for why make up the crap stories? Attention I guess.

    Amen Graag,

    I don't get it either. The worst thing is how easy it is to dis-prove them most of the time without being an insider, either. Most of these losers aren't even smart enough to make it convincing.

    And then we get some heroes who "break the news" to us with such nuggets as "Dave is back!" or "this tour will include old songs!".

    If some of these people were to use the wasted time they blew on E*Trade instead of VHforums.com, a lot of them would probably be much wealthier for it. If you want to make up cr**, join a creative writing class. They love this sort of thing. Oh, I forgot....most of these "insiders" can't write and probably wasted their money to buy the heroine under which they were influenced to come up with some of this stuff. So much for those alternatives.

    Long live the real =vh= fans...the people who check the sites everyday, and who would never make any of this stuff up, especially when sharing it with other fans.

    What are some of these people going to do when the news finally comes out? Its going to be *pretty strange* when the N*Sync message board rapidly gains fans after the =vh= announcement. Maybe eight-year-old girls would actually fall for this stuff.

    ''''''vent mode off'''''

    They want to be the one to write a post that everyone falls for, problem is that the boy has cried wolf so many times... we probably won't believe the real announcement.

    Yeah, Eddymon, ALL your other "predictions" came true. You post something "new" every month or so and say this is from someone who is "in the know". I feel like you do make up this shit so you can say somewhere down the road"Remember when I said....". Hell, anyone can say"My source, which of course I can't reveal, says the new album is gonna rock!" Duhhh! Of course it's gonna rock. If you wanna put out your predictions, reveal your source, give names and ways to contact or keep it to yourself. BTW, here is my new prediction, In the future Van Halen is gonna say something about something and we will either like what we hear or we won't like it. How's that for sticking your neck out? Of course, I can't reveal my .......
