It is rude to do so publicly. At the very least, it's insulting.
If you honestly believe that informing the seller is in the seller's best interest, then you inform the seller privately so as not to embarrass the seller openly. That's pretty basic manners there. You also missed the sub-point of angrysparrow's post; friction. We (everyone, not just the mods) work hard to keep this place a place that people like to visit regularly. In order to help that mission along, the mods try to remove obvious friction points. Calling someone out publicly is pretty much the poster-child for friction. All of this, including your issues with not being able to call-out sellers because you have the time to dig through the internet bargain-bins, is solved with a simple PM.
I guess I'm having problems with why you want it to be aired publicly, instead of privately. What is the benefit of that for you?
