I think tsu has received a non deserved bad rap. Although it does 'pay' people for original content, it is not a place to get rich by any means - however, the intent is that by giving back to users who post original content some of the money earned from advertising , users will post MORE original content and less reshares or downloaded internet memes. Yes there are some spam bot sorts who dont seem to get it and who think that posting 'nice' on any image or by resharing some copyrighted image from google that they will make revenue -- NO. Tsu is a platform that wants people to post thoughts, ideas, images etc that THEY created, and to have meaningful dialogue regarding the items posted.
So, yes you run into the people who cant seem to read the repeatedly reminded 'be authentic, be original', but eventually they will be weeded out as they realize they joined for the wrong reasons. Have seen some great artwork and there are a few musicians I like that I am following -- really I'm just one of those weird sorts who likes to try out new networks. So, if you'd like to give it a try, I THINK if you click the link below it should let you - if not, message me and I will send you an invite.
