To share or not to share? Loophole in a rewards program

Something happened using both my account and my husband's that makes no difference to us but could potentially save someone a lot of money. I want to share but also don't want to close the loophole. This "error" was all on the program in question and again, of no financial gain for me. I tried a search on FT but didn't see anything. Maybe this is a well known loophole. At any rate, any opinions on how much to publicly share as opposed to sending a pm when a question related to this, or any other. loophole type issue might help.

Considering how bloggers spread anything all for a few clicks, I would not share the loophole unless you want to kill it.

You will get a lot of PMs. If it isn't of any use to you I would share it and have a few people use it before it is closed.

I am answering PM's IF I can determine that you are a frequent user with the company that I am speaking of, if you are not it would offer no benefit.
