Author’s note: this essay was originally published pseudonymously in 2017. It’s now being permanently rehosted at this link. I’ll be rehosting a small number of other upper-quintile essays from that era over the coming weeks.
Have you explained anywhere what brought you back to posting regularly on LessWrong/why you are now okay with hosting these essays on LessWrong? Did the problems you see with LessWrong get fixed in the time since when you deleted your old content? (I haven’t noticed any changes in the culture or moderation of LessWrong in that timeframe, so I am surprised to see you back.)
(I apologize if this comment is breaking some invisible Duncan rule about sticking to the object-level or something like that. Feel free to point me to a better place to ask my questions!)
I have not explained, no.
I think this comment is entirely prosocial, and is not breaking any rules of mine. That being said, I don’t have a legible answer prepared, and my partner’s about to have surgery, so I think the best way to get one out of me is to bug me through other channels in a week or something.
