Normally, I'd agree with this...
But knowing Gaia (admitting now that I used to be a huge gaiafag) there is a possibility that they'll take this and run with it. I'm talking about avatars dressed as our anon-tans to fucking shops where people will sell adoptable shit of these mascots for gaia gold.
And I would absolutely hate for something like that to happen. Of course, the likelihood of this is very slim if this doesn't catch interest over there.
