Today's post, Informers and Persuaders was originally published on 10 February 2009. A summary (taken from the LW wiki):

 

A purely hypothetical scenario about a world containing some authors trying to persuade people of a particular theory, and some authors simply trying to share valuable information.


Discuss the post here (rather than in the comments to the original post).

This post is part of the Rerunning the Sequences series, where we'll be going through Eliezer Yudkowsky's old posts in order so that people who are interested can (re-)read and discuss them. The previous post was (Moral) Truth in Fiction?, and you can use the sequence_reruns tag or rss feed to follow the rest of the series.

Sequence reruns are a community-driven effort. You can participate by re-reading the sequence post, discussing it here, posting the next day's sequence reruns post, or summarizing forthcoming articles on the wiki. Go here for more details, or to have meta discussions about the Rerunning the Sequences series.
