I disagree with your disagreement of my disagreement!
The foundation of EA is (or at least should be), finding the truth. We should only reject the status quo if the status quo is wrong.
I don’t have a problem with EA trying out hot takes and contrarian ideas, because finding cases where the status quo is genuinely wrong is valuable and gives a large competitive advantage. But I think this very fact leads to a bias towards accepting such ideas, even if they are not strictly true.
