the fact that your genuine belief that he was a pseudonym for Peter
Boyle turned out to be a mistaken belief. Had your belief been
well-founded and correct, you would logically have outed him.
Owing to the fact that he was immune / un-outable / 'in', I can happily
assert that you are not guilty of outing Chris Kerr.
