Should Giving What We Can change its Pledge?

"Institute for Rich White Guys to write Harry Potter Fan Fiction"

I'd prefer if you were at least a little less rude - I think we generally manage a much higher level of civility here, do you mind editing this bit? It's clear you don't feel altogether comfortable with it because you distance yourself from it in two ways, so maybe just speaking in your own words would be best. Thanks!

On Progress and Prosperity

I agree, but there's an argument in favour of progress that you don't mention. If we magically replace say 2015 with 2016, then we get one fewer year of 21st century conditions, and one more year of saturated-world conditions. If we think that an incredibly valuable saturated world is likely, then an extra year of it instead of the 21st century is well worth it.
