Phage,it is almost fruitless to even explain the term "whistleblower" on this forum.
I attempted to awhile back but the term was and is continually misused.
I agree with you that this man was not an insider to this business.
A whistle blower is someone who directly observed or actively knew of something, NOT a person who just speculated on the possibility.
And can provide investigative evidence!
The world corporations are so interconnected that if a person were to dig deep enough, they would probably find a connection between the owners of the New Orleans Saints football team and the Mexican drug cartel.
But keep on your quest to "deny ignorance" on this forum.
You are a voice of rational reason on this forum.
The man drowned.
Sometimes in life,"things" happen.

Agreed, he is not a whistle blower.
Informant, sure.
Suspicious death? Absolutely.
A voice for rational reasoning? That's an entire different thread.

Just kidding Phage.

Agreed. But that doesn't mean he didn't have insider knowledge of the industry - Regardless of whether he's a rig worker, ship captain, etc. - As long as he is involved (and has contacts) that privy him to any confidential industry/corporate data, then that qualifies him as an insider.

Would you not agree that he is much more likely to have information that the public isn't aware?

I don't know how you did it but you read my thoughts!
I think you nailed it, his being around the industry for that long and not knowing what is going on in as many phases as possible is.. slight.
