2024 Update:

The MESE answers that I've provided represent my thinking at the time of posting. Over time, my views have evolved – around best practices, quality of certain research/ers, etcetera – and I (generally) do not intend to update all of my answers to represent my current thinking. So, please take any/all answers with a grain of salt, and definitely feel free to push back in case/s where you believe my thinking is incorrect, incomplete, or misguided.
