If this anonymous coward's characterization of Tesla is true and accurate, it's not surprising https://www.reddit.com/r/EnoughMuskSpam/comments/99sbwa/form...



The wording makes it sound like you're calling the parent comment an anonymous coward. I also suspect a lot of people didn't catch the Slashdot reference.


Maybe he was hit / smashed over the head with an OPEN SOURCE CD?


Wow. Thanks for that link. Some amazing inside stuff. My favorite anecdote:

most of the time me and the other firmware folks were chasing elon's whims about what to do with firmware. where i should have been fixing critical issues in the system i was pulled off to do shit like add farting unicorns


Why did your choice of words include “anonymous coward”?


On Slashdot, "anonymous coward" was the default username for anyone posting without being logged in.

The linked reddit post is from a user who claims to have worked for Tesla in the past, and is (presumably) not using their "real" reddit account to post it.

I don't read it as an insult.

Gotcha. That makes sense. Slashdot was never my thing. Thanks for clarifying; I had read it as bafflingly unjustified aggression.
