Recent changes to this page by user User:Jayqgreen were unnecessarily sweeping and should probably have been discussed here first. I've reverted them.

Agreed. "were accused of outing" rather than "outing" would be an okay change, though. Liz Henry (talk) 02:37, October 29, 2012 (UTC)
They may be sweeping, but the original claims were sweeping, too, and some of the old links go to pages that are no longer public. Revising my update may be right. Reverting to a biased account with broken links seems less than desireable. I'll revert this now.Jayqgreen (talk) 02:52, October 29, 2012 (UTC)Jayqgreen

Outing vs. doxxing

In re: recent edits, I'm not sure whether outing and doxxing are synonymous. As I understand it, outing is usually about proving a philosophical point (in the canonical case, that celebrities who are queer ought to be public about it to serve as a role model, though I don't agree with that personally) whereas IMO, doxxing almost always has the connotation of being intended to terrorize the person being doxxed.
