Even in 2016 it was clear he was a con artist. He literally said in one of the debates that he wouldn't accept the results of the election if he lost.

Cue 2020: shocked Pikachu face

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.

Sorry I may have some pent up anger.

Nothing a good night of sleep can't solve!

Is this arguably anticompetitive and illegal?

They talk about a few things, 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

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.
