Wouldn't it be smarter to post half of the number and then say that you will provide the other half once you see the bike in person?
Me and you both are serious CL lurkers..

On your question, if www.stolenbicycleregistry.com can post serial numbers of stolen bikes, IMO, it must not be dangerous.

Here is an example.. and they have hundreds of #numbers posted..
