"Fabio - the last thing I wanted was for anyone to not move to Ello. Including you. Yes - your responses drive me up the wall at times - in fact I've deleted some of your comments over the years - we just have different world views,…"
I've got a list of questions and comments I'd like to address, but not enough time to do so right this moment. Later today or tomorrow I'll post on my Ello page about the move - a condensed summary of what led us to Ello vs. any other place. The impending death of Ning.

Cannot overstate how great this site has been and all the efforts you have put into it. Looking forward to transitioning to the ello site. The numbers that have joined elloambient are staggering! "
"Jaja, you just say it better than I could. I posted afew desperate posts, and virtually, I'm still in front of a locked door. Can't even begin to use ello. I passed every stage, including the romantic "bye, my friends", but I…"
"I am here since April 2012 and I loved every year. Behind the big rM landscapes I found understanding and kindness. In my eyes rM is a unique community in the world. One can understand the strive behind this community only after a few years. You…"

"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.…"
"Sorry to occupy so much space to clarify my views. (But then who still comes to .ning these days?) John, I'm trying to stay in the midst of this post. Very philosophical indeed. I feel a strong silicon valley spirit in eLLo, the same way I…"
"Thanks - thank you! Very nice of you.
I have taken donations for the Ning costs. I've paid out of my own pocked a few years. we used Relaxed Machinery Label Compilation sales money one year (it covered a good chunk, I…"
"... totally agree with you Claude... that's why I mentioned you can just follow a few people and only see those people's posts... just like here.

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..
