Still, it sounds like they gave away some identifying information, like that fact that the informant used to run M&C Waste services. They narrows down the list of people to off quite a bit I'd think.

mllawso: Mangoose: You do understand that outing an informant involved GIVING THE farkING PERSON'S NAME AWAY?!?!?!?!

No, it means giving out information that can be used to identify the informant. "Sanitation Worker" narrows it down a lot.


Saying, "the informant ran M&C Waste Services in Westchester," narrows it down pretty well too.

No? You didn't? Ok. Outing an informant involves giving the person's name away. Now you know.


They certainly gave enough information to clearly identify the person.

Is anyone else getting annoyed enough at six-day old featured partner posts that they're thinking of giving up on Fark?

I'm big enough to admit I didn't think that through. I would have assumed this was all common info. I'm assuming it isn't, now.

dennerman: and just decided to be a jerkoff to the first person...


Sort of like this other guy I ran into on the internet, no?

Well, either you didn't RTFA or you like to jump all over people before you've had a chance to process what you've read.  I don't know.  Maybe you woke up on the wrong side of the bed and just decided to be a jerkoff to the first person you thought made a mistake today?

In any case, "outing" someone means revealing their identity.  You can do that without giving a name. Like, say for instance, revealing their place of business and job title. You know, like this quote, "the informant ran M&C Waste Services in Westchester".

Maybe you didn't know that. But hey, now YOU know.

/Probable that the informant was already known now that the charges have been filed, but that's a separate discussion

I plan to continue the same strategy as before, which I call "not clicking links that aren't interesting to me."

FTFA: Sources have told The Post that the informant ran M&C Waste Services in Westchester.

Looks like there will be a managerial job opening there soon enough.

I can't imagine it would have been easy recording 530 days worth of secret meetigs or any meetigs for that matter.
