I personally look at it this way:
I used to work for the military and the military is all about doing joint training with soldiers from other nations friendly to the US with the idea that by working side by side and knowing things about each others tactics, force structure and weaponry they will be a cohesive fighting force against the enemy.
The problem that I and others see is that while this is also true what happens when that friendly suddenly becomes the enemy and now knows your tactics, force structure and weaponry in great detail? You become less effective in combating that foe.
Same holds true for things being discussed here.
While learning about them increases your effectiveness at combating them it also feeds the "enemy" with knowledge and now your good intentions have fueled the fire and that harmless wanna-be hacker has information that takes him to the next level to pose havoc.
If you make these things hard to find access or learn I am willing to bet that the number of incidents would decrease. Why? Because in all honesty your normal wanna-be hacker is lazy. He'll search and research for a while but unless it's readily available and comes fairly easy he is going to give up... too hard...
So, my point (yeah, I actually have one) is that don't make it easy for them. Don't put that stuff here at a legitimate tech forum so it can be indexed by Google and other search engines and then be searched for and found by the wanna-be hacker. Tech forums are highly indexed due to the large amount and ever-changing content.
Don't fuel the fire. The visitors here who sign up and post these things know what they are doing. They are getting those phrases here which in turn get's it into the search engines and into the hands of the wanna-be's.
Just my two centavos...
As a side note, this site is run by people who I guarantee don't make a living with it. The have a TOS... you can agree with it and be a part of the site or not. They can make the rules and you either agree, disagree but suck it up and follow the rules, or disagree and are gone.
I would submit that until you are a "shareholder" at G2G you have no leg to stand on other than the TOS and what the admins and mods deem fit.
