You might think that someone who complains is having a bad time while someone who is quiet is having a good time.
It's the opposite.
Someone who complains:
* believes that what they are doing is worth complaining about
* believes that they are worthy of better circumstances
* feels a sense of agency over their environment
Someone who is quiet:
* doesn't believe what they're doing is worth complaining about
* doesn't believe they're worthy of better circumstances
* feels powerless

I am particularly fond of seeing accounts that tried the fediverse out in the past but then went silent come back.
I enjoy seeing new users, too, but seeing someone come back to give the 'verse another try feels like a bigger win, like there's something so compelling here that it lingers in peoples' subconscious or something.
So, if you were here, left, and now lurk, don't be afraid to chime in once in a while - I'm glad you're here, and I know I'm not alone.

Now that they've found bread predating agriculture, I feel like the headline really ought to be
"ACTUAL PALEOLITHIC DIET IS INCREASINGLY UNLIKE PALEO DIETS"
our latest investigation: is a $15 minimum wage sufficient to attract and retain baristas who truly understand the espresso craft?
OMG, Keen still makes my amazing sandals. I feel like even though it will be at least a year or two before my current pair needs to be replaced, I should just buy these now while I know they exist. Is that a thing people do? Would you do that?
