A bit deeper analysis with multi-pv shows that the top 3 move choices are all very drawish, at least according to Stockfish:
I wouldn't trust Stockfish.

Stockfish still has many weaknesses in its evaluations. For example I noticed that many times Stockfish weakens his own kingside which is not good. King safety is important and Stockfish doesn't know that.
I don’t know if these posts are intended to be some kind of satire but they strike me as completely useless
Agreed.
Uri is someone I listen to carefully.
He was correspondence champion of Israel.
He wrote a successful chess engine.
I guess that if Uri says that SF has a tendency to weaken his own kingside, it is probably right.
On the other hand, the opinion of SF is probably better than the opinion of a super GM 98% of the time.
Not the Uri (Blass) you are thinking of.

Right you are.
Uri Blass has both first and last names in his post.
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

what are you talkin' about..??? one thing we learned from computer chess is king safety only matters when the opponent can expoit it.

you can, and should, throw all your pawns at the enemy king if the position allows it.

in fact, last TCEC final SF beat komodo over and over pawn-storming it.
