    Though it requires some changes, from a technical point of view it shouldn't be too hard to archieve:

    1. make streams non available publicly
    The technic behind that already exists for sub-only streams.
    2. give non-blacklisted people access to the stream
    Also quite similar to the sub-only stream feature, the technic already exists. You just have to take the banned chatters list into account.

    Basically it's 1 more flag and some more checks for that flag plus the blacklist.

    @Eewec People are able to make unban requests already.

    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.

    That's not always true. As the IPv4 pool is limited many ISPs have to rotate IP addresses of their users regularly. That's even concidered as some sort of privacy feature in some countries as a distinct user is not tracable for a longer period of time by its IP address. Blocking IPs permanently would result in banning innocent user in case their ISP assigns them an IP previously banned. That gets even worse in IPv4 tunneling scenarios (some providers only provide shared public IPv4 addresses), public wifis such as in hotels where you share your public IP address with many other users at the same time.

    Banning well known proxies or vpns might be acceptable even though the described problem still applies.

    Instead Twitch should implement some sort of user verification that's more reliable than Email verification - which can even be automated by bots.

    Hey all – thank you so much for all of your feedback around this change. We understand that this was a feature that many of you used in various situations, including the ability for Moderators to highlight or distinguish messages in Chat, and we agree that is important. We are listening to your ideas and feedback in this area – stay tuned for updates!

    To provide context as to why we’ve made the decision to remove the original functionality of the /me command, we wanted to address the way this feature was being used to perpetrate abuse against members of our community. While we recognize this change is frustrating for some, the safety of our community remains our top priority.

    Streamers often pick their moderators out of the community. Moderators often are long term community members and well known to the streamer. The streamers knows on how they behave and have a certain degree of trust in them. Often streamers and their moderators have met before, for example on community meetings, TwitchCon etc. In many cases streamer and their moderators are even real-life friends.

    I understand your concern that streamers in certain cases put a lot of attention on their moderators. As mentioned before that's often because of the trust and friendship between them.

    Not to neglect other chatters is something the streamer should of course do, but that depends on the streamer and you cannot enforce it. If the streamer of your choice doesn't take enough notice of you, it might be that you put too much personal feelings in it. You know what I mean, don't you?

    Also, at this point I want to bring out that you only mentioned subscribers. For sure subscribers support Twitch and the streamers "more" than non-subscribers. But as a subscriber you haven't payed for a special treatment nor for a special portion of the streamers attention.

    Exceptions prove the rule, but that depends on the streamers.
