I hate to say this...
Unfortunately sometimes these public hangings are the 
only way to get some people's attention and to make them
"think" about their transmissions and the consequence on 
the network.  This happens a few times a year.  Public 
hangings, unfortunately,  do help spread the word in a 
cruel morbid  kind of way...
