I think Giridharadas is very good and says good things and picks good targets. But there is a strange attitude here and on twitter that he is guileless, when clearly he is making very calculated moves. This is especially apparent in seeing the Hoffman comment as a threat but not the resignation letter. Maybe the gp came off as harsh, but I'm trying to explain why the ggp should not expect the husher line of attack to be immediately adopted.

> clearly he is making very calculated moves

A very good person can also be someone who makes calculated moves. The two characteristics are not mutually exclusive.

Yes, this. Doing the right strategically for maximum effect is better than merely doing it for performative effect.
