Let me put it another way. If you tell a homeowner that their front door lock is unusually vulnerable to being picked, first of all they should sock you in the face for trying to pick their lock (before they call the police), and second you should not go publishing that information if they choose to not fix it.
How about if I owned the lock and found it was easy as pie to pick, then went to your place and said "oh hey, this is easy to pick, see", pulled my front door out of my pocket and demonstrated to you how easy it was to pick.
Would you still punch me in the face and call the police on me?
And how about I then tell the lock maker, give them six months to fix their locks so people have an alternative to upgrade to and then publish my paper I was writing for university (I was doing a thesis on how shitty locks on every day homes are), which, while highlighting the problem, doesn't give exact details on how to take advantage of said shitty lock, would it be fair for the lock company to sue the pants off me instead of fixing the locks to make everyone safer?
