If you want to create a linkpost on the EA Forum, and the link you've chosen doesn't have a clear connection to effective altruism (as this link doesn't), please add a summary of why you think the link is worth following for people interested in EA.

Ah, sorry. That's my mistake! I've fixed that now by adding it to the OP.

Aaron what would you recommend so that this post has a fresh chance to get visibility? Deleting and re-posting it, leaving it as is, or something else? Thanks!

It looks like more people have seen and voted on it since your update, so I'd recommend leaving it as-is. Thanks for adding the new material!
