Yes, but outed means factual. Opinion is not fact. It doesn't matter how confident you are, because facts are not measured by the level of confidence within them. That's kind of why they are facts. Outed is reserved for proven, exposed Scum, not who Ekko says is Scum.
I agree with this fellow statement, if I have any read this game, it's that my boy ratchet is most likely than not townie this game. At worst indie, and if he is scum, then kudos to him. Because he fooled/pocketed me as well.
