I have a question that I'm pretty sure I know the answer to but just want to make sure that I am correct.

I was playing in a 1 table sit n go and was down to 4 players and one of the players was sitting out.

PokerStars Game #59274815144: Tournament #375424341, $3.00+$0.75+$0.35 USD Hold'em No Limit - Level VI (100/200) - 2011/03/15 23:13:11 ET
Table '375424341 1' 9-max Seat #7 is the button
Seat 1: ruben_tri85 (2260 in chips) is sitting out
Seat 4: crzcanuck2 (4575 in chips)
Seat 7: bobcapone (3800 in chips)
Seat 9: rutrow1 (2865 in chips)
rutrow1: posts small blind 100
ruben_tri85: posts big blind 200
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to crzcanuck2 [Ks Jh]
crzcanuck2: raises 200 to 400
rutrow1 said, "speed it up to blind the guy out"
rutrow1 said, "christ"

bobcapone: folds
rutrow1: folds
ruben_tri85: folds
Uncalled bet (200) returned to crzcanuck2
crzcanuck2 collected 500 from pot
crzcanuck2: doesn't show hand
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot 500 | Rake 0
Seat 1: ruben_tri85 (big blind) folded before Flop
Seat 4: crzcanuck2 collected (500)
Seat 7: bobcapone (button) folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 9: rutrow1 (small blind) folded before Flop

As far as I understand the rules, asking to blind the guy out is a no no so I just trying to play like I normally do. That seemed to tick of the guy who wanted us to keep folding

crzcanuck2: folds

ruben_tri85: folds
rutrow1 collected 400 from pot
rutrow1: doesn't show hand
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot 400 | Rake 0
Seat 1: ruben_tri85 (big blind) folded before Flop
Seat 4: crzcanuck2 folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 7: bobcapone (button) folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 9: rutrow1 (small blind) collected (400)

He was calling me the jerk btw because I raised him with AK the previous hand.

I just wanted to ask what other people do in this situation.

I know of some players who will sit out the initial few rounds of a tourney to avoid getting caught in a big move against the maniacs. They are willing to take the loss of a few blinds to avoid the early outs. Same thing happens whenever the player has enough of a stake to make the money, they will sit it out, take the minimum prize, and be happy. They would rather take the minimum prize than risk their stake on the hope of going deeper.

Of course, if somebody sits out thinking they will make it and there is any possibility of denying the person his win, I'm all for it. But like you, I'll play my hand rather than speed up the game to blind another person.

The guy was a jerk. In those situations I usually take as much time as possible running the timer down to aggravate the person If I can get him to tilt (which in most cases he is near to tilt if he is already berating plays to speed it up) that makes it much easier for you to possible move up two places the sit out position and the tilter.

I have also seen people who sit out but are watching the game and will come in on their turn if they have a big hand and catch someone raising just to steal there blinds.
