I already mention this in my response to kbog above, but I think EAs should approach this cautiously; AI safety is already an area with a lot of noise, with a reputation for being dominated by outsiders who don't understand much about AI. I think outreach by non-experts could end up being net-negative.

It is very different for 1-on-1 engagement with highly relevant audiences than it is for general online discourse.

I agree with this concern, thanks. When I rewrite this post in a more finalized form I'll include reasoning like this.
