Although I somewhat agree with this, I suspect
Eliezer would not; his position is that imperfect
GAI is far, far more dangerous than almost anyone
realizes. Both he and Ben have gone fairly silent
on the list, which I think may actually be a good
thing, since it implies they are too busy doing
actual work on the problem to chatter about it
with us.
