The users of the ELLO website are a very e-savvy bunch. Having literally, LITERALLY grown up online, used to typing HAYES command-set commands like ATDT16172531000 with their teeth while simultaneously jerking off using both hands, they have seen and done it all. Email, newsgroups, COMPUSERVE, Usenet posts, SPAM, AOL Instant Messaging, Geocities, Diaryland, Xanga, Friendster, Orkut, LiveJournal. They saw the dot-com rise, and the dot-com fall. After the crash, they picked up their splintered bones, and hobbled off to dark corners to lick their wounds until their tongues bled.
But before the year 2014 and the invention of ELLO, they had never before encountered such a virulent specimen of uber-troll. Much like a biologically enhanced and mutated form of an ordinary pathogen, one man quickly became known to the ELLO universe, simply, as @madness.
