Help topic 2101 has been updated in regards to the use of Private tables. This update was necessary to assist TDs when hosting and having issues with Non Eliters and former Eliters coming in and disturbing games and players.
The following bullet was changed:
Tourney Tables must be “Protected” in Yahoo! Leagues. Private tables are not permitted in Eliters Yahoo! Leagues unless agreed or requested by the TD; this is so the TD can provide support if necessary. Failure to change status from "private" to "protected" when requested by the TD will result in disqualification of the table host. If another Player is harassing a table, the TD may request or permit it to be made private and will remain at the table to monitor the Match.
If this harassment is an ongoing or common problem the TD may direct all tables to be put on private until the problem goes away;
the TD is under no obligation to converse there decision with the players as this also holds up game play.
