Public shaming has its place. Think back, if you were involved then, to the mid to late 90s. Smurf attacks were the in thing. Places like powertech.no and others began listing networks that had smurfable broadcast addresses. For a while, this did the work for the script kiddies but eventually the networks made it a point to remove themselves from the database and now the problem is nearly gone. I can see this database having a similar impact.
