Good point!

(And thanks for explaining clearly and noting where you learned about logarithmic scoring.)

I would suggest that "helping people think more clearly so that they'll find truth better, instead of telling them what to believe" already has a name, and it's "the Socratic method." It's unfortunate that this has the connotation of "do everything in a Q&A format", though.
