Shall I do the experiment again where I set up a Linux box at an RFC1918 address, behind a NAT device, publish the root password of the Linux box and its RFC1918 address, and invite all comers to prove me wrong by showing evidence that they've successfully logged into the Linux box?
Perhaps you should run a corresponding experiment whereby you set up a linux box with a globally-unique address, put it behind a firewall which blocks all incoming traffic to that box, and issue a similar invitation.
Do you think the results will be different?
