Meta-discussion from “Circling as Cousin to Rationality”

A lot of the dis­cus­sion on this post ended up be­ing about LessWrong norms. I’ve moved that par­tic­u­lar thread over to the com­ments here, and left a com­ment there point­ing over here.

(Some of those com­ments, in­clud­ing the ini­tial one, were ob­ject-level rele­vant to this post. I apol­o­gize for mov­ing all of them in­dis­crim­i­nately. Our com­ment-mov­ing-fea­tures are a bit janky and it’s eas­ier to move an en­tire thread than in­di­vi­d­ual sub­threads. I also apol­o­gize for break­ing a lot of the com­ment-perma­l­inks in that thread, and we’ll look into fix­ing those. Mean­while, you can ac­tu­ally still hover-over the com­ments in ques­tion on LW to see a pre­view of the com­ment, and you can also copy the com­ment-hash from the link and ap­ply it to the new post to get a work­ing link)
