I believe that this kind of thinking, the "what would Eliezer do" thinking,
no matter how well one knows Eliezer and how tractable Eliezer is about his
thought processes, is one of the reasons why many people consider the SIAI
and other SL4 groups as cultish. I don't know to what extent this is serious
or not, since I'm not sure of the effects it might have in getting a
friendly (uncapitalized on purpose) AI working. From the viewpoint of
recruitment though, many intelligent people flee from markers of cultishness
as fast as they can...
