This is a question post.
Hi - I am curious if this article has already been discussed or responded to. I couldn’t find anything through some basic forum searches. Or have the points within it been addressed elsewhere?

Skimming through it, it doesn’t look like it adds anything new; it just recycles old objections like “[EAs are too stuck in their ivory tower to figure out what’s actually happening ‘on-the-ground,’ unlike anthropologists and similar researchers.]”
I can’t say where these points have been addressed, but I have to imagine they can all be found in some “FAQ/responses to frequent objections against EA” somewhere.
