"Such critiques have led to important changes in what many EAs do: for example, GiveWell polled a sample of people demographically similar to recipients of programs it supports on how they would make moral tradeoffs in response to criticisms that it shouldn’t make moral tradeoffs on behalf of the people its recommended charities benefit."

This is a very interesting fact! However, it is really a long and awkward sentence to parse. Friendly suggestion from a reader: maybe split this up into multiple sentences?

I think the estimated reading time for this article is very inaccurate and should be updated. It says 14 minutes but that sounds impossible, accounting for the article’s word count, data density, and many charts that take a moment to digest.
