The summary wasn't supposed to be easier to be read.

I was saying that it was easier to read ;-) You seemed to be asking for feedback on posts that you've "taken more time to edit for clarity".

Although I should say that I am "already (quite) familiar with risks of astronomical suffering; and the research of Brian Tomasik and the Foundational Research Institute".

Oh, I see, the summary was the standard level of difficulty. That makes sense. One thing is when responding to Brian and others for whom the info in my post isn't new, I might be assuming some background context I left out because I assumed it was common knowledge. My post as is might be too condensed. To unpack an essay already so long seems daunting :/
