Do not block words that mearly contain a blocked term.
My name in twitch has been fine for years but a newly added term has been added that makes my name offensive according to your system. This has some unintended consequences, such as stopping people using mentions directed at me or using my emotes. I recall an old server in a game I played having banned variations of "****" in chat, thus "ridiculous" ended us being banned. If a legitimate word contains a banned word, should the legitimate word be banned too? Obviously not.
Banning '***' is fine so long as there's an exception for 'assassin'. Assassin is an actual word with a meaning that has nothing to do with the 'swear'.
'nogg' can be filtered so long as you have an exception for actual english words that contain the word. ie 'noggin'
I agree, my large community is disappointed. Shape up, Twitch... or don't.
Yeah it's getting annoying having to continuously allow the term in automod every stream because the term isn't getting added to a whitelist.
