So instead you unleash it upon kiddie and spammer world? That's lovely.

Some people are advocates of this or that disclosure mechanism, and
believe they are right. I can bite.
You just say: "I'm so cool. I will release this, get a ton of attention
and then say 'hey! They violated GPL! How dare they?!'"

He didn't have to release it... he could have sold it or any number of 
other things including just exploiting it quietly.  We should stop 
shooting the messenger and say thanks to people who do other's 
debugging for free and for all our own good.
