Setting Up a Giving Subreddit

November 28th, 2011
giving  [html]
I'm setting up a new reddit: r/smartgiving. Before, when I came across other people writing about giving or charity in ways that seem sensible, I would either try to write a whole post around and responding to a link or I would just think "good writing!" and move on. Having a place where I can post links and talk about them with people should be helpful.

I seeded it with some initial posts so people could see what my intent is for it to look like:

I have a longer list that I'm going to try to post one a day from until the subreddit is self-sustaining. If you come across some writing that you think would be a good fit, please submit it. Or, if you don't use reddit, you could send it to me and I'll post it.

Checkmate on blackmail?

It has been argued that blackmail should be legal if gossip is legal, and even that there are no good consequentialist counterarguments (!). I think this isn’t obvious because the disclosures incentivized by blackmail are systematically worse than gossip.…
