Yep, sorry for participating in off topic stuff when the center piece is
your great work.  Thanks for doing this, really enjoyed doing the survey
and going through the results.

One thing I really find interesting and maybe troubling is how dominant
r/emacs is.  Personally I generally enjoy r/emacs and r/orgmode, along
with a couple other islands of humanity in the reddit cesspool (and the
odd cool thread on other subs), but IMHO Emacs deserves a better place.

I wonder if you have any insight into whether the reason r/emacs is
represented so heavily is because most your respondents come from
r/emacs or is it because r/emacs has become the de-facto place for Emacs

If the latter, maybe it’d be nice to try to set up something like a
Lemmy [1] instance for Emacs in order to replace that.
