Yeah, and I'm torn about my feeling on this. I'm okay with them doing it on freerolls
, but they have no right to do this on buy-in tourneys. When you buy your seat, you are given chips to play and are entitled to play poker anyway you wish. If your strategy is to jsut sit there being blinded off and doing nothing, that is your right. You paid for the chips. But freerolls you aren't buying chips, so let them kick the sit outs out (Sorry Shinedown and OneMoreBust, but now you know for the future).
