Usually, your questions feel more suited for a general-purpose forum than the narrowly specialized set of interests commonly discussed here. (We do have "Stupid Questions" and "Instrumental Rationality" threads, but even those follow the same standards for comment quality as the rest of LW.)

Also, posting a dozen questions in succession may give users the impression that you're trying to monopolize the discussion. Even if that's not your intention, I would understand it if some users ended up thinking it is.

I would suggest looking for specialized forums on some of the topics that interest you, and using LW only for topics likely to be of interest to rationalists.


Thanks. Do you have a suggestion for another forum you recommend I move to?

If it's worth saying, but not worth its own post (even in Discussion), then it goes here.
