When it becomes a rationality dojo instead of a club for people who like to geek out about biases, I'm in.

What does a "rationality dojo" as you envision it look like?

One thing you could do to help LW become more the kind of forum you'd like it to be is write a top-level post.

Another, if you don't want to do that, is to comment somewhere with the kind of top-level topics you would like to see addressed.

rationality dojo - group of people practicing together to become more rational, not as an intellectual exercise ("I can rattle off dozens of cognitive biases!") but by actually becoming more rational themselves. It would spend a lot more time on boring practical things, and less on shiny ideas. The effort would be directed towards irrationalities weighted by their negative impact on the participant's lives, rather than how interesting they are.

Sure, I will see if I can find the time to write a top-level post on this, thanks for asking.
