    "you don't deserve it"

    Would have been more acceptable to use some SA term like Doff, or perhaps the general British Wanker. DB is so American, which he clearly is not (I mean, look at him--he looks like he belongs in Twilight!). To your point about replacing him--maybe that wouldn't be such a problem after all. For all his blah blah blah, planning and execution are what's key in this industry and Tesla has flailed left and right. Don't feel slighted--your reporting is fair and your site has a cool vibe. Does he want to piss off stodgy old east coasties? Sure. Offend auto enthusiasts? Not so much.

    "Well, since you put it THAT way..."

    ...I suppose we should take it as a compliment. Still, we can't help remembering that old bit of media wisdom: "The only thing worse than being called a douchebag in public is NOT being called a douchebag in public." At least, we think that's how it goes...
