Should Konami Name And Shame Cheaters?

Often in football, people are very reluctant to label players as "cheats". I can understand why - the media especially - hold back from doing this, but I feel if cheats were named and shame, then players would think about their actions on the pitch.

The same can be said about the cheaters we have on PES. Konami have stated that they will take action against the players who gained from the pause/own goal cheat. But since then, it seems to have gone a little quiet.

Anyway, presuming Konami have punished the cheaters in one way or another, I was thinking whether it would be a good idea to name and shame these dishonest players.

Like I stated before, it would set a good precedent which would seriously reduce the amount of cheaters as players would think twice about whether it's actually worth it.

The only setback that could occur is cheaters would think seeing their name in the spotlight would be a good/funny thing. And going on from that, if the punishments are strict enough then they could just come back - using a different Gamertag or PSN ID for example - and begin to cause havoc all over again.

I feel this is an interesting idea that I thought I'd share with you, so be sure to tell me what you think.
