Block Russia from accessing Twitch due to Fines
In very recent news, Twitch has not been complying with the overly strict requirements of censorship required by the site to run in Russia.
Twitch has been fined now multiple times. Twitch within a month.
It is easy for us all to see that you will not bend the knee and start censoring the streamers on your platform. However, it's also easy to see this situation won't end anytime soon.
I think it's wrong to blanket ban Russian streamer and delete their content. Obviously. We have to preserve that history for once the war ends.
However, the site being allowed in that country is another matter at the moment. Please do not wait for the Kremlin to ban Twitch. Please, start preparing immediately for a full disconnect from Russia for the health and wellbeing of the site as a whole.
This is a win/win. Take a stance against the war.
Protect your core company values and interests before you're fined again or worse.
Living in 21th century we all have a ability to use internet and have fun watching streams and supporting our fellow content creator.
But appears that we have a terrorist country in here which is still able to get donations and have fun while people in my country (Ukraine) is dying due to missiles from russians.
Hopefully blocking them to use all of services that modern world have nowadays make them think more about their responsibility on supporting full scale war in 21th century.
Hope for your understanding,
