There is nothing inherently wrong with publicly shaming an individual for aberrant behavior, as Chris said that is a mechanism for a community to preserve and define itself.
Personally I think that whining about someone else's behavior is usually petty, but occasionally justified. If it is not justified the OP should be mercilessly mocked, as I have observed taking place. I wish we could blacklist people from the forums, that would indeed be useful.

People blacklist players they don't want to play with, more people should blacklist players, then they will only play with players who don't annoy them, shaming is usually pointless, I only do it if the host has rigged the game in a non-obvious way, but rarely do people care.
Most people are happy to play anything, even if it's rigged or even with bad players, they just surrender when they stop having fun. But then most of these players don't use the forums either, only the whine-bags use forums. So I think in the end it's the perfect place to whine about having to blacklist a player for x reasons. If you don't like it, just don't read them! :)

Well, if there was a list/count attached to each person's profile, then you could have filters on games for that. Like total people blacklisted you less than 50 (just as an example). So you could pre-screen trolls from your games/tournaments even though they are not on your black list.
