Add new filters for creating usernames to deter the creation of accounts used for trolling/harassment purposes
In light of recent events in which two individuals have been harassing and cyberstalking a number of Twitch streamers, myself included, it would be helpful to filter out alternative forms of profanity along with formats of phone numbers.
Specifically, I suggest the following be filtered/prohibited in username creation:
- bltch (with an "L" instead of an "i")
- wh0re (with a "0" instead of an "o")
- ########## (the typical format of including phone numbers in a username)
All three of these techniques have been used by internet trolls when creating multiple accounts to harass streamers and post their personal information. Please consider filtering out these techniques to deter further accounts being made in this manner.
I have recently been getting trolled in my chat for the past two streams now, there’s one guy who thinks he’s hilarious and invincible because I can’t I.P ban hun from coming in. He keeps making new accounts with hurtful/stupid names and not saying anything in the chat so I can’t report him for ban evasion. It’s ridiculous, I hope there is something that could be done about this!
yea the troll names have gotten too annoying :)
