I agree with this stance. There are currently reports of partners and affiliates also getting strikes/bans for content that was already deleted from the platform but seems to be getting scraped from the Twitch archives. Devin Nash has demonstrated exactly how easy it is to find previously deleted content on his stream. This adds to the concern that if the content is publicly accessible, that a DMCA strike on content from years ago may indeed not be present on Twitch's streaming platform, but rather be on the Twitch archive servers. Since Streamers have no option to delete that archived content, it should not be held against them as they made a good faith effort to comply on the direction of Twitch.
Also additional concerns would be that if these servers are publicly accessible, and they are receiving more attention through social media, that there may be malicious users who scrape and farm banned or sensitive material from those servers. This could be very bad if say a content creator accidentally streamed revealing personal information and thought the content had been deleted. A malicious user that recalls the approximate date of that revealed information, and becomes privy to these stored VODs, may be able to download and spread this sensitive information.

There were some discussions that weren’t super applicable to feedback and I have gone ahead and removed them.
We super appreciate the feedback and want to keep hearing your ideas. Please just keep it focused on bodypainting/body art community and feedback around that, over feedback on specific channels/users.
If you have anyone who you are concerned about on Twitch or someone who you are worried about how they are acting on Twitch always feel empowered to report them so our team can further investigate the situation.TheBadLuckBuddha shared this idea ·
This is an idea we’ve discussed internally on a few occasions. I can’t make any current commitment to timeline because we have a few things we have to do first, but we would like to provide this feature.
We would like to offer an “off-duty mode” for Mods, but it isn’t one of our top priorities at the moment. Will revisit in 2021.
