Well I know who's next in line for a little chat.

Wow, when they were practically giving those away, I figured they were washing their hands of it. It's amazing that it's still being supported.

The Star Trek community has been going strong for nearly 60 years for a reason - Star Trek rocks.

When it started in the 60s (and continued especially strong with TNG in the 80s), it was unique in depicting a hopeful look at how things could be rather than a reflection of how things are, differing from how most shows do social commentary. It's refreshing.

Star Trek is attractive to people who want to see a world where people work together toward great things in a post-scarcity utopia, with current day conversations of race, nationality, sex, gender, etc. being so far in the rear-view mirror that they're non-issues. Plus cool technology. I think that appeals to the Lemmy crowd.

Haha, what can I say? I just want to help things grow.

Is this arguably anticompetitive and illegal?

They talk about a few causes, but this is the gist of it for anyone who doesn't want to click:

Researchers cited the pandemic as the biggest factor in the widening gender gap; it took a heavier toll on men. Unintentional injuries and poisonings (mostly drug overdoses), accidents and suicide were other contributors.

My condolences, but Florida immediately voted for Flexit

Here's the rest of the (long) thread that I cut off for readability, but it's also pretty funny:

In my experience, a lot of these subs aren't abandoned and have plenty of subscribers, so if you post, people will jump on it.

I love you.

Just trying to do my part to help non-corporate social media grow!

Because the most active contributing users left. I used to comment a lot on reddit, but I've been exclusively on Lemmy since my 3rd party app was axed.

And I've been very active here. Like, even on this alt account that I made 16 days ago, my app says my post "karma" is already higher than my reddit comment karma was from over a decade.

I feel more willing to contribute because there's a sense of community, and I'm not just providing free entertainment for a company to profit off of.
