Implement a "Zero Buffer" option for Mods, at least.
I find myself becoming ineffective as a Mod when my buffer slips to 20 and 30 seconds long. Any time the stream from the channels I mod gets laggy I find myself seriously behind Real Time. While reloading the page can help with this, every time I do I miss large chunks of stream time, possibly missing relevant contextual information for knowing when to Allow or Override the AutoMod. (When AutoMod catches the message "Oh look, its Captain D i c k!" it's relevant for me to quickly know that a man named D i c k was just introduced on-stream.) (Edit: Really? As if to prove my point that context is important, I had to edit this name in order to not have it censored in this message)
I can understand that an option like this can make the stream choppier, and that you may be hesitant to open an option like this to the general userbase, but for someone who is "working" its worth the compromise.
