if you can, open source it.

reliable techniques are not defeated by sharing them. obfuscation security is less than ideal. don't silo knowledge unnecessarily

That works better for some techniques than others. Too many people tried DNA scams and ruined it for everyone. I'm all for open sourcing techniques that can be open sourced without ruining them, but some things are kept secret for a reason, like OP said.

Sure, it is a balance, and context should always be kept in mind. However, in general I always like to encourage people to share information that can be safely shared, there is a lot of siloing of knowledge which ends up hurting people who are left out due to being marginalized intersectionally.
