Any instances brought before the Directors were upheld at those times, but I don't think that automatically means every single instance will be upheld. As far as I'm concerned, if someone is excluded from a tournament but then doesn't challenge it, then there's nowhere for me to step in. It's only when someone complains about it that we step in. Past instances may have been upheld, but the instance that sparked this discussion did not seem justified in my mind, hence the decision.
Hate to break it to you friend, but if you feel that reason just recently wasn't justified then you never should have let me exclude Blitzaholic when I did. He created a huge stink about it and you let me have my way. It doesn't matter that I was admin at the time, you were Head Tournament Director and should have put your foot down if you are going to hold the line in such a way now. We both know, as does everybody else, that my exclusion of Blitzaholic was far from justified.
To make such an argument now about justification puts you in a bit of a corner, don't you think?
