That idea is called killer moves. Chess engines already store moves with a special flag when they cause a big threat of some kind. It does make the search go faster.
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.
