The New York Times vs. Slate Star Codex

In June of 2020, Scott Alexander, author of the popular and influential rationalist blog Slate Star Codex [previously] deleted the blog entirely:
Last week I talked to a New York Times technology reporter who was planning to write a story on Slate Star Codex. [...] Unfortunately, he told me he had discovered my real name and would reveal it in the article, ie doxx me. “Scott Alexander” is my real first and middle name, but I’ve tried to keep my last name secret. I haven’t always done great at this, but I’ve done better than “have it get printed in the New York Times”.The article has run. The headline: Silicon Valley's Safe Space.
