I didn't know that lesswrong I didn't know that lesswrong imploded. Where can I read the gossip? On a related subject to judging when a system applies, since I was young I have tried to identify what kinds of arguments and rhetorical tactics are used when someone is correct and what kind are used illegitimately or for incorrect conclusions so that when I found people arguing about something that I don't know much about I could orient myself towards the better truth. I also was more attracted to subjects where I could argue when the teacher was wrong, like math. One of my sharpest tools for dividing good arguments from pointless was what purpose I needed the distinction for. So I only had to model the minimum nebulosity necessary.
