I don't know who downvoted this, but I think it's rude and unhelpful to downvote a post without leaving an explanation of why you did so, unless the post is blatant spam, which this is not. EAs should be upholding norms of considerateness and encouraging intellectual debate.

Have upvoted to balance out. I may make a substantive comment on autonomy later.

Someone downvoted your comment without explaining it, so I upvoted to balance out. (But I suspect it was just a practical joke.)

I suspect it might be because I've not couched the website enough in terms of EA? I like EA and would love to work with people from the community and perhaps get the website more EA friendly. I've not been massively encouraged by the EA yet.

There is lots to say about autonomy, so I look forward to any forthcoming comments.
