To this day I'm still only willing to turn it in one direction (clockwise looking at the front of the camera) because the other way feels certain to break my lens mount.

Exactly same here. I guess I will get used to it

I also had no idea before buying that the tilt was only in one direction which kinda bummed me out

For tilt, one direction only is not too bad, as usually you know in advance what direction you will want to move towards.

It would be worse for shift, in case you use that feature to make (stitched) panoramas. Using the older shift-only Kipon, you have to rotate the lens mount 180 degrees inbetween full-shift shots in each direction: that makes it delicate not to change any other lens setting (such as focus...).
