I just discovered something pretty important. I won't go into details for obvious reasons but the knowledge that I have, if released on the internet, can help people but also do an awful lot of harm if other people use it wrong. But at the same time I have this urge to make my mark in this world and affect it. So I'm torn on whether I should just keep this information I have to the grave or release it on the internet regardless of the consequences.

What do I do, ernst? What would you do in this situation?

It's a German website, so Ernstchan isn't really important.

Shoot!

Well, do a balance test on the public good. Does the potential harm override the benefits? Is it something that will eventually become public anyway? Can the harm be mitigated (informing relevant bodies first, redacting points etc.)?

I think as a starting point the answer should always be to share. It can hardly be held as your fault if people misuse knowledge because otherwise nothing would ever get done.
