Just a thought, I dunno if anyone already thought of this idea, but maybe someone should consider creating a PSN/X360 hall of shame website, where people can submit names of droppers, with photo evidence (e.g. Lost connection screen + low health bar, msg retaliation).
Selected admins can authenticate these submissions, and are added to a hall of shame which is displayed on the home page. The #1 dropper is listed at the top based on the number of times he has been reported with a photo gallery link of those photos associated with him. Maybe once they’ve taken note, and is dropping less or leaving less abusive messages, their name disappears or moves down the list after X number of weeks (may need ideas on this).
It’s a pretty harsh idea, but when scrubs and droppers start taking note of this, they may reconsider their attitude for dropping to future players. It will also provide advance warning to genuine players whom to consider avoiding too.
Any thoughts about this?
EDIT: Vanilla has implemented something very close to this idea: http://thebadloserswallofshame.blogspot.com/
