Hide Messages from Monitored Chatters from Mods/Broadcaster
There is a big problem with Twitch's current "Restrict/Monitor" function.
As of right now, if you start monitoring or restricting a user (for example, a ban evader), for moderators and the broadcaster, EVERY message that user sends is highlighted, making it stand out from every other message. While I understand that this highlight function has it's uses, it is inherently harmful if users are consistently making new accounts to ban evade. This system is doing the opposite of what we need if their messages are standing out to our moderators and broadcasters, as it makes it HARDER to ignore the messages and the trolls/bad actors will KNOW the message will be more likely to be seen due to the highlight.
I think the best solution to this problem is to do a similar action that deleted messages have for moderators. For anyone flagged as a ban evader or anyone marked as "restricted" under the same function, the messages from the restricted user should be hidden from view unless the moderator or broadcaster click "view message". Broadcasters and moderators mental health is important and they shouldn't be put in a position where they're made to consistently view abusive messages when they are trying to restrict them from both the public chat and themselves.
When it comes to people making accounts over and over, limiting the ban evaders is more effective than banning their accounts, as they will just keep making new ones. This gives moderators power and peace of mind, as the restricted user will likely be unaware their messages aren't showing up to the public chat, or at the very least it'll give moderators more time before a new account is made by the ban evader.
Twitter has implemented a similar feature where it'll automatically hide every single message from flagged users, making the user posting abusive messages completely unaware that their messages are going into to the void, not being seen by anyone. In today's time it should be less about "Just ban/block the user" and more about "How can we avoid these abusive messages from being seen?".
