A while back, I read and used a writing style in which private information was redacted by inserting the word “mumble” in the text, such as “according to my sources [mumble] is a CIA field agent.”
So today I got an email notifying me that I had a private message over at [mumble] and what I found there was rather interesting, a continuation of a private conversation that has been going on for a while. [Mumble] wrote that he had received confirmation of his formal [mumble] about [mumble]. I read the thing back when it was filed, and it was wonderfully detailed, legally sound, and totally devastating, pointing out egregious misconduct on the part of [mumble] and arguing convincingly that such conduct was worthy of [mumble].
I’ll be the first to say that an anonymous report is worthless (unless you trust the source), but I think that there is a real chance that [mumble] and his [mumble] will get their comeuppance in a very public way, although probably not very soon since the wheels of [mumble] turn slowly.
I trust that I have been sufficiently vague that no one will have the slightest idea what I’m talking about (and if you made a guess, it’s probably wrong). What I actually wanted to share in this article is that one of the perks of this job is a little inside information now and again, and to say that sometimes things are a little better than they seem.
