Sorry. I was in a really shitty mood. That wasn't nice of me.
It seems to me that Leverage had a large and broad effect on the Effective Altruism and Rationality communities worldwide, with having organized the 2013-2014 EA Summits, and having provided a substantial fraction of the strategic direction for EAG 2015 and EAG 2016, and then shared multiple staff with the Centre For Effective Altruism until 2019.
For me personally this still rounds off to "not very important." Especially in the sense that there is nothing I, or the vast majority of people on this site, could possibly do with this information. I was already never going to join Leverage, or give any money to Geoff Anders. I have a lot of rationalist friends, both IRL and online, and none of us had ever heard about Geoff Anders prior to this recent drama.
Think about it in terms of cost-benefit. The benefit of this kind of content to the vast majority of people on LW is zero. The cost is pretty high, because ~everybody who sees a big juicy drama fest is going to want to rubberneck and throw in their two cents. So on net posting content like this to the main LW feed is strongly net negative in aggregate. A post which is simply dumb/wrong but otherwise un-dramatic can at least be simply ignored.
I think that if it were, say, Yudkowsky being accused of auditing people's thetans and having seances, I would find that relevant, because it would have implications for my future decisions.
A few things.
