I'm sometimes curious about why certain sentences are chosen to be highlighted in bold on SOTT. Like the following in the article linked above:
Challenging another "experts-are-made" contention - that beyond a certain threshold, intelligence makes less and less of a difference in accomplishment - the authors cite a study by Vanderbilt University researchers that looked at the math SAT scores of people with PhDs in science, technology, engineering, or math.
(Bold by SOTT editors.)
The other bold/highlighted sections of that article are statements that are supported
by the rest of the article, but the one I've quoted is an idea that their research challenges
. So why is that section highlighted? Is it a mistake?
More generally, I'm curious about the reasons for bolding/highlighting sections of articles in general. I recognize that it often serves to highlight important points that corroborate other pieces of evidence from other articles (or add a new piece of data), but I'm curious how you decide what should be highlighted in general, and what are the different reasons for highlighting sections? Has this been answered before?
