GiveWell Board Fines Employee for Internet Deception

The New York Times reports that GiveWell's board of directors has fined an employee $5,000 for using a false name online to steer people to GiveWell's website.  The board decided not to demote program officer Elie Hassenfeld based on his previous contributions to GiveWell's work.  The board previously announced that it had demoted one of GiveWell's co-founders who admitted posing online as a prospective charitable donor to direct people to GiveWell.
