To indirectly tell secrets or offenses to a person of authority or any person meant to be kept away from a secret or offense, sometimes inadvertently.
If the telling of secrets or offenses is purposeful, minute details are usually left out as not to appear to be directly telling.

It is indirectly snitching.

"I see this offensive picture is still up. I recall other member's being banned for posting such a thing."
"I see this offensive picture is still up. I recall other member's being banned for posting such a thing."

This person is dry snitching on the person that posted the offensive picture. The person is not directly named (a minute detail) and a direct action is not actually being suggested.

"Stop dry snitching. You are going to get him banned"

Dry snitching is a calculated but yet passive aggressive way to dime out your homeboy. In most cases to save your own ass without being the obvious rat bastard you are and save yourself from a fishing trip in your new concrete Nike’s.
You and your homeboy get pulled over

Cop: I smell marijuana step out of the car
Cop: who’s weed is this?
Homeboy: like a MF’n G says nuth’n
You: look at your homeboy and say “don’t worry fam I’ll put money on yo books”
Homeboy: (shaking head) you dry snitching Mufuka.
