Hand it back to them, take the highroad

Besides you'll probably get on their good side and might get an exclusive.

Close down the poll and give it back.

Giving it back because people told you to doesn't make you look any better for it.

I could go either way. On the one hand you're probably risking the potential of any relationship with Realtime, on the other (depending on what is in the docs) you could gain a lot attention.

Publish it and you wont just affect your relationship with realtime worlds. Developers are not little islands separated by infinite space. These people talk. You publish this report from one developer and others will hear. Just try to get any exclusives or NDA protected info then. I wouldn't trust you as far as I could throw you.

Establish yourself as a site with high ethical values and integrity and you'll likely have a better relationship with companies. Even if it doesn't work out that way, you won't lose respect from your community by doing something many would see as a dirtbag move.

(at my time of voting) that 82% were in favor of the high road. I hope the poll maintains or improves upon that number; because, an 18% douche bag number is a high enough number imo.

After all, it's fake anyways.
