I've not spent time in maybe a half dozen international forums (I don't do mainstream social media, I simply don't care for it) but Gaia is still pretty confusing to me. Even after nearly a decade of exposure to ameblo.jp and other Japanese forums, it's still a challenge.

That being said I've got everything on max filter, both strong text and image blockers, so I've made it as confusing as it's gonna get. Figure if I leave the hard way, It will ultimately be easier to navigate in the long run.

Part of the reason I personally can still come back after massive hiatus, is the extensive filtering. It's the same reason sites like twitter stay strong, because images are posted under a cut.

It's an interesting thing, how tolerant people can be, with the Illusion of control.
