Pinterest just FIRED whistleblower who exposed them…

I guess the attempt to conceal the identity of the whistleblower who exposed Pinterest failed:



According to O’Keefe, the whistleblower has already been fired by the big brother social media company.

I honestly thought they did a good job of concealing his identity, but I guess that wasn’t enough. O’Keefe says there was a certain amount of risk in doing this and the whistleblower accepted it.

Hopefully this doesn’t ruin his reputation. I know people talk, but legally Pinterest can’t discuss why they fired him to other companies. It’s crucial that his identity remain anonymous, but something tells me he’s gonna be outed by someone who wants him punished.

He got fired? Good. Now, lets get behind him, crowd source him, and get hims to start a competitor to Pinterest so I can get off that fascist Nazi platform and not be their customer.

Same with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.

Funny how you know who James O’Keefe is but he has no idea of your pitiful existence.

Yes, and you’re still not. Life in the anonymous comment section is hard, bro. Represent.

Yeah, so is Trump. You keep taking girly swings at them but they don’t go down.

I’m not surprised. They may have been able to find out the documents this person accessed and put two and two together. They probably also spy on their employees. I hope he is able to find other work because the left is so vindictive, they’ll try to destroy his life. Very sad.

I’d just say, think about someone you know real well, now imagine them in a group of 5 people you also know. Now distort the voice and hide most of that person, but show the shape of their head, maybe their glasses. Show what was possibly their shirt (they showed the arm of a shirt. You know the person, and you probably know what clothes they wear.

This should have been done with someone else being distorted (different body shape) and maybe someone different reading their words (different voice).

Yes, I thought the ‘cover up’ was rather shaky.

I only went to that site for ideas about knitting patterns. Note that I said went.

I never did because it just wasn’t my thing, but I always assumed it was neutral. Wow was I wrong!

I use it daily. It’s an invaluable tool in design work for everything from houses to guns.

Invaluable for now.

Pinterest is a crap company so this victim will likely be doxxed – which is sad.

The media will find out who he is and dox him. Guaranteed.

That is when the doxxers need to be doxxed. Play stupid games get stupid prizes. Let them experience what they do to others.

I knew he’d be caught. I’m sure he knew to a degree. They can track who’s seen what document, and when, and then just whittle it down from there.

Not really. I thought they would find out. People don’t realize many companies are doing electronic surveillance on their employees without them knowing. It’s like a company-wide spy tool.

I think you’re exactly right. A tech company would certainly have the means and tools.

They know it. It’s in the fine print. They just didn’t read it.

All it takes is to mention it to one person and your entire cover can be blown. Maybe he had complained prior so they focused on him immediately. It could be possible that they could trace through IT who gained access to the information…?

He’ll be doxxed by Slate, Salon, Vice, and/or Vox, on Twitter, FB, and maybe even YouTube…they’ll do nothing about it despite long-standing policies against it.

Makes me glad I closed my account with Pinterest this morning. I wish the whistle-blower the best , hoping he doesn’t face repercussions for telling the truth.

I how he sues the shit out of pinetrist! To hell with these liberal run companies..

I have a billion dollar idea for anyone…..

A one stop conservative alternative to all these companies. Just copy under different name.

I can’t stand any association with any of them.

They are at war with conservatives!! We have to realize that

Avatarruss Oh we realize it alright, but we are so behind, caught flat-footed so to speak, it’s going to take a very long time to come up with viable alternatives. The Left has completely taken over nearly all our cultural institutions and communication venues.

AM Talk Radio is the one place where Conservatives hold dominance. I can’t think of any other, and it’s hard to find even neutral places.

FB wasn’t born overnight. These things take years to implement, to plan, to gain ground. I and some others out there have the skills and the drive, but there’s too few likeminded souls out there.

These folks who out these companies and their nefarious business practices need to be protected. Guy sounded very knowledgeable, hopefully, he will have no issues in getting employment.
