Thinking about it, perhaps the difficulty to get on — small, though much harder than other social media — is sometimes a feature. I think that most aren't willing to put in a lot of effort, perhaps one of the reasons there's so, so much less spam in the "comments" here.

Most is a bad way to infer generalizations. Social media tends to show you what you want to see & things similar to what you've seen, which can lead to an echo chamber effect, I think.
When it seems to me that something 'happens a lot' and is controversial I like to check online for statistics.

The has much less "algorithm" but nonetheless you can still get yourself in an echo chamber if you choose the wrong server (e.g. with prejudiced bans on other servers).
