Somebody owes me some BTC and it does not seem like he is going to pay. Is there a sticky topic where I can warn other to stay away from the user?

Usually here.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

A sticky topic in the lending section for defaulters would be a good idea.

I don't think that there's been a single case where it's mattered. If someone defaults, they almost always abandon the account.

That's why it matters, because established members should have better credit.  At least within this forum.

We've tried various ways of collecting defaulters, but they all end up abandoned due to laziness. A thread would be very messy, but allow easy checks. As others said, alerting others to scammers seems pointless as defaulters almost never stick around. For example, I don't believe anyone on this list (which has been abandoned) has ever re-appeared: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?key=0Ao892S4MOoDZdHNzNzVYdVg5UVhybHJMRlJTelBuTUE&output=html

Don't mix your coins someone said isn't legal

There's little you can do besides this thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=483.0
It isn't the best way to handle non-paying borrowers (defaulters,scammers or otherwise) but that's the best we have at the moment.

Advice to a person who may default-Please be honest with your lenders so that you can at least work things out even if you're on the verge of defaulting instead of just running off with the money and not admitting it as it'll bite you back later (scammer tag,anyone?) and cost you dear (lenders can make huge losses). Normally in the real world,if a person has trouble keeping up with repayments,then you can go to a credit union (in US and UK,possibly other countries too) to help sort things out or a person who is willing to arbitrate on your behalf (either for a fee or for free). We should have more services like that in the Bitcoin world.I know I'm willing to offer this in my spare time for a small fee when I'm able (once the business becomes official in about 2 months time due to other business ventures taking me time to sort out.)
