Greets, 
        If the issue impacts a single person then why does the world need to
know? In that case disclosure is pointless and damaging. If however
the issue impacts many people some of which you don't know and have
no way of contacting, then disclosure is a must as it will protect
them in the long run. Don't get the arguments mixed up. Generally
speaking, vulnerabilities almost never impact a single person, even
web application vulnerabilities.
