An excellent article and laudable ethic not publishing rumors. I’m sure it’s hard to compete with outlets that have no, such compunction.
In his farewell post, analyst941 came off as somewhat immature revealing - to me, at least - a person likely raised on social media and thirsty for “likes”. This sad situation provides a good example of why such actions can be damaging, if not destructive - and not solely to the individual propagating the rumor/leak. He took advantage of a familial relationship which now appears to be seriously damaged - perhaps even long term/permanently.
There really is no, true “victimless” crime. I wish them the best.
