Subject: [CR]e-bay "outing"

After I posted the message on the older cyclo derailleur on e-bay I received the following message from a K. Denny.

Please don't "out" this stuff to the world. there are many of us who > search long and hard to find such items, only to have the process > shortcutted by this kind of act.

Did I err in bringing an item like this to the group's attention? I thought, having watched what others had contributed, that what I did was ok. Is there some unwritten list of collectible bike parts that can't be shared with the group if they should show up on e-bay because of their interest to specific individuals?
