...or get off the pot!

What is it with people entering a tournament, playing a hand or two, and then sitting out? I have only anecdotal evidence, but it seems more prevalent in the past week or two.

I have just exited the 0645 100K Community Freeroll and played at a table where five of the nine seats were occupied by players sitting out. A recent ring game saw four of six seats held by people who had something else to do.

I understand that nature calls–or one’s significant other–but I can’t help but believe that most of these absences are willful and premeditated. To my eyes, we have a lot of inconsiderate players.

I wish there was something we could do about this.
