Good points. I don't think "(benevolence)"/"(beneficence)" adds anything, either. Beneficence is effectively EA lingo. You're not going to draw people in by teaching them lingo. Do that a little further into on-boarding.

I'm glad you said so. From now on I'll use well-meaning/ good intentions, and evidence-based good instead.
