Over the last few days many have participated in conversations around the net about Holden Karnofsky. I have opened this thread for those who would like in good faith to discuss what we have learned from what we saw in that "crowd sourced" action and reaction. As moderator, I impose the following rule: I will delete any comment that in my sole judgment seems motivated by malice, or by a desire to hunt, hurt, or hound any human being, guilty or innocent. Please use a live email in all comments, so I can get back to you if the comment is ruled out of bounds. You are welcome to write to me at my email if you would like to discharge venom that needs to be directed at someone. I would suggest that we refrain from taking one another to task per se. We have gone about as far down that road as seems worthwhile. Instead, as we each reflect on what we have seen, said or done, what have learned about how the net works, about how crowds work, how philanthropy works? Have we learned general lessons that might guide us going forward?
I have moderated comments and will be checking often to publish them. Thanks, all for keeping this constructive.
