    Writing "j/k" after you say something ridiculous doesn't make it any better (especially among people that don't even know you that well).

    This is a tournament for well-mannered folks. We value manners here. There will be no trash-talking, insulting or anything of that nature here. If you joined this tournament for the wrong reason, please let me know.

    Alright, comrades, it's tournament day! IF we have an Elimination Round, don't forget to save your replays (if you make it that far).

    On a serious note though, I don't believe I'll be able to make this tournament. It didn't come up until now that I had to do some outside work around my house, so because of that I'm afraid I won't be able to make it until at least a half an hour after tournament begins.

    Regardless of if I make it or not, I hope you all have fun and enjoy the tournament, I'll just have to make it to the next one!
