When someone is doing something wrong we should not "out" or embarrass them.

You should try to settle the situation offline without leaving any bad feelings.

If you know the offender you should discuss it with him (or her) person to person. Be diplomatic.

Don't lecture to them, discuss it with them. You have noticed they are doing something which interferes with good operating practices and also mention that other listeners have noted the fact. 

If you cannot contact the person you can mention the offense on a contesting or DX'ing forum such as this

I find it is better to show them the way.

When those who observe and are able to identify bad behavior are 
unwilling to "out" the bad guys, they keep on doing it.
