A LOT of people have it so you can't message them unless they follow you, and they don't even know they have this setting. It is unnecessarily annoying.

No, GAG should never get rid of messaging restrictions. It's protecting me from getting unwanted messages.2

It is designed to stop girls getting unsolicited pervy messages from guys. They keep their profile private. An example was my sister. Within the first week of her being here, she was flooded with unwanted attention. Her profile now says something like "don't bother messaging me about love and sex. You won't get anywhere".
I should add that this isn't a dating site!1
