Everything we post isn't going to always be 100% confirmed (such as if a firm is done with callbacks or not) and I think we need to stop this behavior before it chills the sharing of potentially useful information throughout the OCI process.
This is more important for OCI than LR, but I do agree that when people are providing an inside scoop, they should provide a source. It would be helpful to know whether information is based on OCS advice, 2L intel about what happened next year, an attorney at the firm, etc.
Also, I don't think the likelihood of "outing" a source is increased that much by giving some vague info. If your source actually reads these posts, they will probably suspect you based on the information you provided anyway... especially since some clearly incorrect information like this discussion of more LR offers was probably not being offered by multiple people.
