The Ramblings of an old Wolf
I'll rant, rave, and complain, so if you don't like any of those, hit your back button now. I'm generally a really fun person, I promise! I'll probably post links and pictures. I PROMISE everything I link here is 100% safe!
Rant on Gaians bashing on TinierMe immigrants, so if you're an overly-opinionated Gaian jerk, just walk away now, because I may offend you. In fact, I probably will.

First, I've been on Gaia longer than TM, and a lot of people have different opinions about each site. EVERYONE is entitled to their own opinions, and no one has any right to say otherwise. I'd LOOOOOOVE to be given a stun gun, and allowed to tazer people who are so right/left wing that they won't even LISTEN to the other side's stories.

Yes, TinierMe was cool while it lasted, and I made terrific friends. But about 6 months before the shut down, people just seemed to get more... Angsty/hateful/spiteful, you name it. There was a ton of drama going on with item trades, begging to be coined(Tipped here), or begging for items. Begging for items didn't get bad until people started being incredibly ungrateful about what they were given. What, do you think someone's just gonna up and give you their most expensive item, something they've worked hard to be able to afford? No way!

I will admit that I gave away better items that I had more than 2-3 of, but when you say "That's not good enough! I want this or I'll tell EVERYONE that you're a rich f*****t who is mean!" Now, that's ungrateful, and I'll tell you to your face that you're an ungrateful little slime with little to know care about what you say about me. I tried to be nice and you weren't, so there.

I've NEVER had that problem here, and although I don't hang around the forums or Towns as much as I used to, I feel that I have been sorta sheltered from the bad things, since I don't go to those places, but I still have very good friends.

You have to take the bad with the good. There are going to be trolls, jerks, harassers, nay-sayers, whatever ANYWHERE. Just because people migrated from another site doesn't mean that they're here to cause trouble(although I'm sure there are those that most assuredly are). But that's on any site. It doesn't matter what community is being catered to, there will most definitely be someone who isn't happy about something, and oh BOY won't they let you know about it!

Gaia is supposed to be a welcoming and warm community, and if people start bashing on others, it not only makes the users look bad, it makes Gaia look bad.

I've been on Gaia for about three, maybe three and a half years. I've never bought Gaia Cash, and I don't have very good items to show for my time here. But, the greatest thing I could've asked for, I have: Good friends. And that's what everyone should want.
