    Whatever you do, don't look at the front page too often. Neither with the "newest" nor the "popular" setting.

    Avoid the urge to surround your user name with xX______Xx bullshit.

    While it is impossible to avoid such things, you can do your best to hide in your little corner of deviantart and hope all the disgust stays in it's own corner. Once in a hundred years, you'll find a good piece of art on the front page or Daily Deviations. Actually, your best bet is probably to rummage through ConceptArt.org and find an artist you like there. Many of them have deviantart accounts as well. Also, stalk your friend's favorites. They'll have good stuff if they're not faggots.

    Avoid furries and weeaboos? It can't be done. No matter what I'm searching for something weeaboo or furry related always pops up.
    But if you want to try, then don't stare at the front page, and join groups that have nothing to do with either of the two.
    Unfortunately bad art is everywhere, just ignore it.

    basically, whenever one of them talks to you just ignore them, don't tell them you don't like furries or weaboos unless you absolutely have to, since doing so will likely cause them to baw and then call all their friends to spam you with fail.

    if you're going to watch someone, check their gallery first, if you see furry or weaboo stuff in there, then steer clear.

    also, sometimes someone will initially appear normal, but then turn into a furry or weaboo, at this point you'll just have to unwatch them, since there is no cure for either condition which can be administered remotely

    if you wish to avoid drama, then I suggest you avoid being harsh with anyone, always be polite with people unless you know them really well. this is for your own protection, as dA's retards can be set off by the drop of a hat, or even by nothing at all.

    I try.

    of course that strategy won't work on everyone, everybody is different, but it should be at least a good framework.

    not that I needed to tell you that part ^^;
