Why do we need our own Leverage Research? What have they achieved?

I've updated the post.

I don't want to distract from my point even further by going into the common criticisms of Leverage (although to some extent I fear it's already too late for that...the Leverage reference was the bit I was most unsure about, so I'm assuming that's what's driving the downvotes until I see evidence to the contrary).

I don't really care about Leverage one way or another. I initially downvoted to try to avoid the needless community drama, but I've removed my downvote now that you've removed that.

However, I'm still not going to upvote and the reason is the the wider and more important point -- your post still doesn't actually argue for anything. Why do we need full-time EA community strategisers? What would they do? What's wrong with our current approach? I'd love to see more elaboration here.

Thank you so much for taking the time to explain :-) This is really useful.

Ha, yes, this post started as a long comment that I then thought might warrant a post, and I was hoping it might just cause a lightbulb moment for some people and not require much explanation. Alas!

I have a more substantial post r.e. community strategy in the works anyway. I'll probably just delete this one soon. I apologise for my first post being a bit of a disaster.

Hey, no worries. Sorry this forum can be kinda intense for newcomers. I'll be really excited to see your more substantial post. :)
