I'm sorry you felt I was putting words in your mouth. I'm 100% certain I quoted you exactly. You wrote to conclude your opinion with the following generalized statement: "If you can't manage to keep your mouth shut while you're not playing, you should be watching from very very very far away."
The crowd is also not playing. They are not keeping their mouths shut. And they are very audible and could be categorized as distracting by those who are more sensitive to noises around them. Thus, according to your if-then statement, they should be watching from much further away. And I strongly disagree.
If the other player in question had been in the crowd of spectators and reacts audibly in the same vicinity of the player on the pin, is that now OK?
I recall one specific instance where Robin made a fantastic nudge save on Embryon in a match we were playing together, and from the bar area with TV's (probably 15-20 feet away?), I reacted loudly with something akin to "Nice!" or "Awesome!" Should I be reprimanded for this outburst? Do I need to be further away in order to be invested in my match by watching my opponents' play and reacting to it?
I'm genuinely curious at your thoughts here, because I respect you and your opinion.
