Agreed notroman, I would ignore them anyway. I know of one player who everyone is calling him bagger because he still plays in Int and did win few of them despite having 930 rated average. His point is that he feels he should play in Int until he got rating average above 935 then he will move up to Adv. He likes to collect plastics via prizes. Each to their own.
For me, I would prefer playing in pro grandmaster as I like to play with better players and have better experience even thought I should be playing in Adv Grandmaster (currently have 920 rating).
