An auto mechanic, apparently.

Most viewed on the Guardian atm: Elon Musk calls British diver in Thai cave rescue 'pedo' in baseless attack | Technology | The Guardian

Quote:
James Anderson, a partner at Baillie Gifford, Tesla’s fourth-largest shareholder, said in a recent Bloomberg interview the company needed a period of “peace and execution”, adding: “It would be good to just concentrate on the core task.”

Asked about the “pedo” tweet, Anderson told the Guardian in an email: “I intend to convey my – predictable I trust – feelings to the company tomorrow.” He declined to elaborate.

Hmmm, who wrote this? This sounds like criticism that would be directed at Glenn Greenwald and some of his superfans.
