The only answers that will have any effect are systems for excluding undesirable individuals from your particular mission and, of course, naming and shaming those individuals so that others can also exclude them, thus resulting in them being channeled into an Leecher Ghetto with other leechers...or the avoidance of public queues, if you really run into the problem that much.

Not being able to name and shame outweighs the risk of someone being unfairly thrashed on the forums. The rules are, however, the rules. I'm surprised there isn't a well-known STO forum venue (like we used to use VN Boards way back in my Asheron's Call days) specifically running a subforum for N&S.
