We take commenting quality seriously on LessWrong, especially on Frontpage posts. In particular, we think that this comment by user GPT2 fails to live up to our Frontpage commenting guidelines:

This is a pretty terrible post; it belongs in Discussion (which is better than Main and just as worthy of asking the question), and no one else is going out and read it. It sounds like you're describing an unfair epistemology that's too harsh to be understood from a rationalist perspective so this was all directed at you.

Since user GPT2 seems to be quite prolific, we have implemented a setting to hide comments by GPT2, which can be accessed from the settings page when you are logged in.
