At least they did not do the reporting of the Fark login of me. I mean he. He probably has the Fark login that is totally not Meow Said the Dog.

I'd like to know more about how they were outed.

It seems interesting a forensic analysis could lead to more than just suspicion.

Attorneys have a notoriously poor understanding of IT. A simple "double proxy" (with fake names and gift American Express debitcards for payments) on both subscriptions ought to be sufficient to block a private investigator trying to prove something. Most likely they just had accounts with email addresses that led back to themselves.

FTA: A federal prosecutor has been demoted after anonymously posting abusive comments on an online news site.

Well, apparently not.

The way you write is pretty unique. In a lot of cases, it's like a fingerprint. Anyone who is trained in such things can pick out your particular idiosyncracies and word choices if they have a wide enough sample to work from, even if the writer thinks they're being careful. I've caught people doing cut&pastas in research papers when their syntax and word choices suddenly changed, and I'm not even good at it--and that's how I've spotted a couple alt trolls here on Fark, too. So someone who really knows how to do it could probably catch someone with reasonable suspicion.

Judging by her expression, she looks like a rather boring person that took great joy in posting abusive comments. To the point it may have brought on waves of ecstasy and pleasure. It's really a shame no one could have introduced her to Fark for her outlet.

Yeah, same here. There's a step missing between "forensic analysis" and "demoted".

Done, didn't even have to blink to get it, and when I outed it, I got a spanking. Ergo, concordantly, E Plurubus Unum.

Agreed re: attorney tech savvy. However the younger attorneys (I worked at a major USAO) are coming in with a decent technical skill set and more importantly, an intuitive understanding of what's possible and what questions to bring to an expert.

Is there a way to....obscure them? I'm curious.

This just confirms what a read a number of years ago: when it comes to politics, New Orleans isn't really in the southern US, it's more like northern Central America.

If you resort to posting online in such a way as to endanger a prosecution, your case must be pretty weak. Someone with a good case would most likely know how to keep all crowing quiet, while someone who keeps getting slapped down might resort to online carping.

So - the firing was part of a performance review?

This is why I do the best of just blending in and doing the typing like everyone else on the site of this just in case I must one day do the in court proving of things.

Holy crap. First Assistant U.S. Attorney is a big deal job. WTF?

She is second in command at that office. Her boss (the US Attorney for Eastern Louisiana) is directly appointed by the President.

Sure. Type out what you want to say then edit it using different grammar and vocabulary. Tada!

For instance:

LOL. I noticed that I have my own particular writing style; I wonder if there is anyway to hide it?

Execute American citizens abroad without due process? No problem.

Detain American citizens indefinitely without due process? You're good.

Make citizens sell arms to Mexican drug cartels? No worries.

Try a Google Translation Round the World Circle Jerk.

Pick 4 languages, translate to each, then back to the original.

This is what Meow says the Dog does, but she chooses the same languages each time.

If you choose different languages each time, it will be pretty hard to figure out who you really are.

Also, use a kidnap font if you can.

Mr ugly landfill guy must really have done something wrong if he's hiring private detectives to rid himself of pesky attorneys who are writing nasty blogs about him. If he was not doing something corrupt, he would have just laughed it off. Government lawyers are a cliquish bunch and him orchestrating the firing of two of them will not be overlooked. I'd bet dollars to donuts that this will lead to the Feds keeping him under a microscope. Looks like the Streisand effect may strike again.

More seriously, yes, Anonymouth.

However, the results of that experiment would be hilarious to watch.

From a safe distance.

A very safe distance. Like, five or six miles.

Having an opinion someone else doesn't like and expressing it is not what trolling is.

Banning someone for having an opinion someone else doesn't like and expressing it should not be a crime.

The part where she commented on pending cases is definitely crossing a line though.
