Neat. I work for DLA. Thanks for the update.
Thank you very much for the insightful news. I consider these posts essential reading.
Once again, thank you for these incredibly informative posts.
Thank you for all this useful information and analysis.
Thank you very much for posting these.
I agree it fits well here. However, it has a very different tone from other posts on the MIRI blog, where it has also been posted.
Laziness. Though I note Stuart_Armstrong had the same opinion as me, and offered even fewer means of improvement, and got upvoted. I should have also said I agree with all points contained herein, and that the message is an important one. That would have reduced the bite.
This article is very heavy with Yudkosky-isms, repeats of stuff he's posted before, and it needs a good summary, and editing to pare it down. I'm surprised they posted it to the MIRI blog in its current form.
Edit: As stated below, I agree with all the points of the article, and consider it an important message.
