> Gmail service is in Beta. You have no credibility posting this advisory. The correct channel to post such "bugs" is the Gmail contact link for "bug reports".
> If you weren't a script kiddie or scene whore, you would have known to hold information until such a time that Gmail became a public service.
Then he'd probably be regarded as a kiddie too... unless he has
reported the bug before. Keeping bugs secret and waiting until many
people use a product, then releasing the advisory is in two senses
a) if you had disclosed the information to the author (here: Google)
before, the bug would most probably have been fixed
b) more people are affected by waiting
Posting it here while gmail is in beta stadium is not SO bad - but one
should also report it to gmail themselves.
