Abstract: Pluralistic ignorance is a nasty informational phenomenon widely studied in social psychology and theoretical economics.

In formal epistemology there is enough machinery to model and resolve situations in which pluralistic ignorance may arise. Here is a simple first stab at recovering from pluralistic ignorance by means of knowledge transmissibility.
