Oracle slogan is "be exactly as evil as you can get away with".

I would argue that's true of virtually all publicly-traded for-profit companies. They just vary widely in how much they "can get away with".

Sadly they get away with it a lot.

s/attacked/criticized the statements of/, and the twitter thread lacks any link to the blog post in question. How is this supposed to foster discussion at higher levels of the disagreement hierarchy? Flagged.

Your first sentence does not even make sense -- what are you trying to say?

Why are you flagging -- it is not clear at all.

If anything, the excerpt that the tweet shares from the blog post ("Pay No Attention to That Man Behind the Curtain") underplays how aggressive the post is. Alone, the tweet's image looks at first like a footnote disclosing funding sources, but the full context does indeed seem like systematic criticism of the briefs and everyone around them.
