I didn't say it was only one thing? JBOMBER asked for an example. Zoe Quinn is a great example of doxing.
Naming someone is not doxing. It's just naming someone. Someone who, btw, should be named, considering the rubbish he plastered around the internet. You said it yourself, doxing isn't one thing. The CNN threats were childish, though.
I won't defend CNN at all. If they were going to name the bloke, then just name him.
From my first post about this, I have been laser focused on doxing, not CNN.
