Actually, the content of this list has always averaged low SL3, but with a
distribution that included a substantial amount of SL4 material along-side
much SL2 and even Sl1 material. There has been a decline in list quality
over the last few months however. The list snipers have been relatively
inactive. More importantly, without a useful "best of" archive, new
would-be posters have no low time investment option for catching up with SL4
or high SL3 thinking so almost none of them bother to do so. We are rapidly
decending to the level of other Transhumanist lists, e.g. good conversation
for smart people who aren't trying to save the world and for whom this
material is fairly new, but understanding worse than some highly capable
people had achieved by the late 1980s.
