Nodoid: "it is just like if you get a letter marked "Private and Confidential", if you decide to put it on the web, there isn't anything anyone can do about it"

If someone does publish something marked "not for publication" or "private and confidential" then they become responsible for any harm it causes, e.g. if it's libelous or if the publication does any harm to the writer.

So although it's technically true that you can publish material in this way it can backfire because it's the *publisher* that then becomes responsible for any consequences, not the writer.
