I posted my game capx file on the forums. Then I thought is was a bad idea because people could easily steal it, right?

well, they could, but in most cases the capx posted have issues in them or are incomplete (I personally recommand to post a description of the issue, and the capx with altered graphics, or another capx with the same issue so there is no stealing risks), however to make profit out of it, they would need a C2 license and working on your codebase to complete the game, which takes sometimes more time than doing the game themselves.

however be wary if your project is something you do not want to share the entire source.
Game design is all about decomposing the core of your game so it becomes simple instructions.
