Ello Explanation - Future Plans - Why Ello vs. ______ platform etc...

"John, you are a great operator and your approach with the label is wonderful. Yes you do talk quite a bit about your label and releases but you also spend quite a bit of time mentioning others on here that are not on your label. I like your…"

"Well John you have access to some insight, so not only do I trust you but I believe all problems will be solved in a near future and that will be the time for anarchists like myself to join back. Just open a few more doors and I'll find a way…"

"Claude - we just disagree and there's nothing wrong with that at all.  I don't see Ello the way you go.  I'm somewhere up on world affairs, but certainly not an expert.  I'm not mad or anything like that.…"

I'm liking this seemingly new trend you are showing for being 'zany'.. it's nice to see a good sense of humor on this forum.  Keep up the good work!

Hello, John. I wanted to wish you a good evening, and to say thanks for this site that has become my new home:) As always, I enjoy the blossoming artistic relationship I have with the ambient musicians here. I really have to go to the poetry section again and check things out there! Here's a robot or two for you :) Who can resist the infamous Portal Turret, right?! "I'm different...ahhhh..." haha and, of course, the robot from Beastie Boys "Intergalactic" hee hee..
