I’ve been avoiding Ello recently because:
1) Every 20 seconds I get that fucking pop up asking if I’m using the platform as an artist or a fan. Neither, I’m using it to blog. And, being the stubborn bastard that I am, I refuse to give in and just click one. Interesting, none of my other Ello accounts get pinged with the pop up insanity, just this one.
2) The amount of porn spam accounts has gotten ridiculous. In fact, I think someone is hijacking abandoned accounts and turning them into these spam accounts. The last five porn spam accts that added me have names, avatars, & posts unrelated to porn, but a bio that contains a “http://sеху._______.ru” link and a disjointed message like “hаvе аn аffаir frеsh lоvе tо mееt а wоmаn fоr sех yоu will prоbаbility hеrе” (that gem is from @anamelex). I’d flag these accts for deletion, but does Ello even still have any devs? I wouldn’t be surprised if the “Ello team” was just an old, neglected server spending it’s final days hosting this sm platform.
On top of all that, my personal life has kind of been a nightmare, but I feel like deserves a separate post. Hopefully I’ll soon return to my regular schedule of haughty beer reviews and complaining about everything.
