Addendum/update to my Harry Potter/Methods of Rationality post

... apparently the author is actually an AI and rational thinking expert and the fic has a purpose, for teaching methods of rational thinking.

This does explain a number of the Slightly Off aspects of the fic -- it has that Atlas Shrugged vibe to it, but is unfortunately overlaid on the Potterverse so it doesn't have the unity of purpose that Atlas Shrugged has.

I'm informed that Harry v2.0 doesn't become more likeable as time goes on, alas. I would have liked to have read the actual fic that would come from those basic assumptions but that didn't have an axe to grind OTHER than that basic question.
