Re: Could 'sabotage' be used for humans rather than 'things'?
I'm not quite sure what you are asking. It is possible to sabotage someone's chances of something by tarnishing their reputation, if that's what you mean. Let's say you have applied for a job and you know that John has applied for the same job. If you wanted to try to make sure that John was not successful you could anonymously tell the people who are going to make the decision that John was fired from a previous job for theft or something like that. By telling them that, you would have tarnished his reputation and, as a result, probably sabotaged his chances of being chosen for the job.
