Red thumbs (even the unlimited personal ones) should prevent people from joining a standalone game where that player is already at the table. It doesn't work for tournaments, though, for various reasons.

I think the reasoning for allowing red thumb matchups on tournaments goes something like this:
Player Z creates a tournament. Players A and B (who have both red-thumbed each other) join. Several matches are played, and eventually A and B are to play each other for the final.
If the system prevents them from playing, who wins the tournament? If it isn't for the final, but just a preliminary round, who moves on?

Now, this is assuming that Player Z created the tournament. Should it be different if player A or player B created the tournament, disallowing the other from even joining the tournament when there is a good chance (except for a round-robin) that they won't ever face each other? Should it be different if only player A has red-thumbed player B, but B hasn't thumbed A?

Note: I'm not currently voicing support or condemnation on the current method, just showing some of the thought process that led to its enactment. If answers to those questions can be found that please everyone, maybe the system will be changed.

The initial scenario, outlined as I understand it, was that a tournament created by Z shall not be accessible to player A if player Z had privately or publicly red-thumbed A before and Z is participating in the tournament.
Tournament matchups between players who didn't create the tournament would be unaffected.

With my understanding above, I support the suggestion! For the reversed case – should I be able to join a tourney whose creator I red-thumbed and who is already signed up – I'll reserve judgement for now. If in this case the creator also red-thumbed me, though, the answer should be a clear no in my opinion.

Are there prestige points or badges for your profile involved in the tournament? In that case it shouldn't be possible to take the chance to join from anyone.
If it's just for fun tournament among friends (no prestige/badges) I guess it should be ok to exclude unwanted players.
