Nice job abt_master and for all of you that does not know where to find what abt_master is refering to ...
Spectators are permitted at tournament tables, but they should remain silent and kibitzing is strictly prohibited. Table settings should have the "Allow Kibitz" box unchecked, where applicable.
"Silent" is a relative term here: it is ok to say "Good luck both!" or some such, it is ok to ask for permission to watch, it is ok to say "GL both, I play winner". It is NOT permitted to chat with other spectators or players, it is NOT permitted to comment substantively on the play of the game, it is NOT permitted to openly cheer for one player over the other.
If any player in the match objects to the presence of any spectator, s/he must leave the table on request, no explanation necessary. If spectators cannot be controlled (in the case of a heckler, for instance), players should invite the TD to the table and then make it private.
The hosting TD and the HA and AA of the hosting league are always allowed to attend at any game, they may not be booted.
This rule does NOT condone the indiscriminate use of boots to remove spectators from a table. The spectator should always be asked politely to leave. Only if s/he refuses to leave the table should the boot be used.
Hope this helps
