We apply IP bans in Chat based on users’ Moderation actions in certain cases. We don’t currently plan to publicize the logic we use because we think it would make it easier for bad actors to bypass the restriction.

Try two factor authentication. Implement it so that streamers can require it to chat in their channel or not. That will prevent hate raids by bot accounts. IP bans may not be completely effective because many people know how to use a VPN or change their IP address, but it will stop some of the teenagers who are just trolling for the "lulz".
We’ve released an update today that addresses some of the feedback in this thread:
- You can now once again highlight and copy messages for easy translation, raid message organization, and general copypastas
- Clicking into the chat will not immediately open the reply function. On hover, the reply button in the top right of the message will initiate the reply
As it’s been a few days, curious to hear whether the initial feelings and experiences have changed!
