    Wouldn't we all? but I think it's probably beyond the comprehension of the programming if you haven't stacked the bad guys up in your ignore list.

    What's an ignore list Kewps?
    Are you saying that if you put a player on this list(which I don't know how to find) you can't be in the same tournament as him?

    ignore list only stops a player from challenging and sending you messages
    tournaments are different, no barriers

    I'm saying that if the OP's suggestion were to be implemented it would require each individual to maintain an up-to-date ignore list. I do instant resignations when one of the sandbaggers/clan-cheats shows up in my tournaments, so that I can still play in the tourney, and the individual concerned has had the gall to message me asking why I resigned. Go figure.

    I'm pretty sure that was venda's point.

    "I'm saying that if the OP's suggestion were to be implemented it would require each individual to maintain an up-to-date ignore list."

    Not too difficult to do. Yes, you can lead humans to tools that simplify their lives, but you can't make them use them. Should this be taken to mean that help shouldn't be offered to people who aren't too ignorant to "maintain an up-to-date ignore list"?

    Probably the one who is constantly manipulating his rating so that he ends up playing in two bands of banded tourneys. That is my beef with him.
