Overwatchers: what’s your take on obvious smurfs?

You hate to see it. Archon Tinkers blinking with a speed of light, edgepanning like crazy – reported for hacking, even though their mouse movement is alright. Crusader Broodmamas obliterating the game with a casual 20:0:0 KDA reported for "griefing".

So far I only had ~3 overwatch cases when I was 100% certain the player is a smurf. And honestly – I don't know what to do with these. My first one I set as "Not Guilty", the other one I simply decided not to review as I am honestly conflicted.

But what's your opinion on them? Should we just say guilty for griefing – because they ruin the matchmaking? Should we say guilty for hacking/scripting even though they aren't, just so we can combat this plague? Guilty on both accounts? Not guilty at all, since they're technically "pLaYiNg ThE gAmE"?
