This post is for sacrificing my credibility!

Thank you for your co­op­er­a­tion and un­der­stand­ing. Don’t worry, there won’t be fu­ture posts like this, so you don’t have to delete my LessWrong ac­count, and any­way I could make an­other, and an­other.

But since you’ve dared to read this far:

Cred­i­bil­ity. Should you max­i­mize it, or min­i­mize it? Have I made an er­ror?


Don’t be shal­low, don’t just con­sider the ob­vi­ous points. Con­sider that I’ve thought about this for many, many hours, and that you don’t have any priv­ileged in­for­ma­tion. Whence our dis­agree­ment, if one ex­ists?
