Failure to disclose is just as dishonest as a seller auctioning off a PRO-graded card that he or she knows is trimmed. There may be a bit of a differential between a collector who does not necessarily know the card is trimmed (more often the case with Topps than OPC issues....) as opposed to the dealers (there are at least two that come to mind...) who actually do the trimming and submitting.

I have never felt names were important. It is the grading companies' job to reject cards that they know to be (altered) or cut of sheets after leaving the factory. I am assuming that in your question you are not referring to strip cards as well as other cards that were specifically issued on sheets with the expectation that collectors cut them off. Examples are Post, Kellogg’s, Briggs Meats, etc.

You know the old saying about what happens when you play with fire ...
Through your experience, we've all learned that the moderator frowns on (... to be polite ...) the practice of naming names. To avoid the risk that a future temporary ban becomes permanent, I'd recommend against it.
Seems like there may be different opinions in the hobby as to whether sheet cut cards are considered trimmed. This would make it different than a person trimming a 1967 topps card and selling it without advising the buyer of the trimming. However, I think your motiviation in wanting to name the dealers is because you believe they are deceiving buyers - otherwise why would anyone care who they are.
Nonetheless, I think Sean made SGC's policy (which is very reasonable from SGC's perspective) about naming names pretty clear. I would strongly advise against it.
