Feedback: I had to scroll a very long way until I found out what "s-risk" even was. By then I had lost interest, mainly because generalizing from fiction is not useful.

Thank you for your feedback. I've added a paragraph at the top of the post that includes the definition of s-risk and refers readers already familiar with the concept to another article.

1Brian_Tomasik3yThanks for the feedback! The first sentence below the title slide says: "I’ll talk about risks of severe suffering in the far future, or s-risks." Was this an insufficient definition for you? Would you recommend a different definition?
