It's too bad that they didn't post the question to the list in the first
place; the whole idea of the list is just that - tap into as many heads as
you can.  But given that you got the question off-list, I'd say that it's
best to ask that person if you can post their question and your answer.
That's not really within the realm of our list protocol.  It's more a part
of general netiquette.  Some people are shy.  Maybe they want to keep
things private.  I guess if you're in doubt it's best to ask, although your
motives for posting were certainly well placed.
