How do you submit a potentially serious bug to the developers WITHOUT posting it for everyone to see?

in steemit •  3 years ago 

I'm a relative newbie and the answer to my question is probably posted somewhere obvious . . . . but I HAVE looked and I'm not finding the information (so it should probably be moved to some place even more obvious).

Thanks in advance!

I thought about doing that but a) it's still public (unless I post something like "I think I found a major problem, please e-mail me at [email protected] to tell me how to report it without it being public") and b) using a whale's wallet as a posting wall is not to be encouraged . . . .

Good idea -- except it is still public. Assume that I found an easy exploit (what I found was not -- but I still don't care to publicize it), how can I alert the developers without it being public?

You could try the steemit chat

Doh! I can Direct Mail there, can't I? (and, if I don't know who to send it to, someone can answer my question better there).

Thanks!
