In another post of mine I have pointed out that if you are pious, and you do all your fard prayers and your intentions are correct....then everything you do turns into ibaadah. even things like eating sleeping and working.
so, maybe by warning others with the intention to protect them against this individual will give you even more hasanaats than to cover this individuals mistakes.
That is your choice...we cannot make that choice for you.
So, whatever you do...with the right intentions, you will earn your hasanaats...don't worry about that.
