Just to push back on this, I'm pretty sure Elon Musk would hate it if people like me didn't throw rocks.

Elon Musk is masterful at getting attention for himself. He thrives on "nobodies" like me talking about him (good or bad), and I'm pretty sure he'd approve of my article. Not because he agrees (or disagrees). He'd approve of my article because the fundamental goal of Elon Musk's marketing strategy is to get attention.
