What are words, phrases, or topics that you think most EAs don't know about but should?
Who should pay the cost of Googling studies on the EA Forum? 1. Many EA Forum posts have minimal engagement with relevant academic literature 2. If you see a Forum post that doesn't engage with literature you think is relevant, you could make a claim without looking up a citation based on your memory, but there's a reasonable chance you'll be wrong. 3. Many people say they'd rather see an imperfect post or comment than not have it at all. 4. But people tend to remember an original claim, even if it's later debunked. 5. Maybe the best option is to phrase my comment as a question: "Have you looked at the literature on X?"
