Add "banned users cannot watch the stream" to shield mode
The new "banned users cannot watch the stream" might be worth adding to the shield mode system.
So you throw shield mode on and then banned users auto enables if enabled in the shield mode configuration

If the streamer has option to only allow logged in users to watch the stream, then we could further improve that by having the chat moderation settings also apply to being able to watch.
This would put the ability to chat and the ability to watch on the same level of hurdles for the user. This would address the argument of people just making a new account or incognito to watch stream. The new accounts would have the same hurdles the streamer set for chat.
Additionally, when enabling shield mode, you are essentially adjusting your moderation settings and therefore it would also adjust the ability to watch stream the same because those rules are now applying to both chat and video.
So, if you experience a hate raid or other event that requires enabling Shield Mode, you are tightening the ability to watch for all those people coming in. Whether they are already banned or not.
"Only logged in users can watch" can also be added as something you normally have on or is turned on/off with shield mode.
That would be awesome! I would add that the banned user shouldn't be able to see chat messages either!
this would be huge if it got added
