    Relevant Update  ·  Twitch responded

    We’re happy to announce that we have released an additional update to address these concerns. Streamers can now prevent their banned users from watching their livestreams. You can find and turn on this feature in the Moderation settings section of the Creator Dashboard, through the “Stop banned users from viewing stream” toggle.


    Please note, this update 1). does not prevent users from watching livestreams from an incognito window or while logged out and 2). does not prevent users from viewing VODs, clips or highlights. We plan to explore extending the functionality of bans further, including but not limited to preventing VOD and clip playback.


    In addition, we’ve made an update so that users that are blocked will now automatically be blocked from watching a streamer’s livestreams.

    We will leave this thread open for your other points regarding preventing view of other content types and account creation.

    This honestly has gone on long enough. You stated your points and how you obviously do not care one bit for the protection of streamers due to the small percent that "abuses" bans. Yes I did block you because as seen from messages here you yourself cannot act like an adult and are doing the one thing you so adamantly are against in the case of others who messaged before me (banning people who did nothing wrong). I do not trust someone like you who threatens and yes it is threatening when someone says "Oh, and for anyone else who thinks it wise to do this, don't. You will just go on a big list of abusive users and will be banned everywhere, once I get to reviewing the details of your abuse. You better hope your record is squeaky clean. Chances are it isn't, though, and you'll get prison time". This conversation for those who do care and want to at least HINDER those who abuse, harrass, stalk, or anything in their chats can't even continue because no matter what is said you have something to say against it. This is also signs of cyberstalking a group (and since you like linking things so much here is where I got my info ;) https://www.verywellmind.com/what-is-cyberstalking-5181466). And to quote what exactly applies to you - "continue the harassing behavior even after being asked to stop, track the target's online movements by installing tracking devices (this one having to do with the " I have an automated tool for this. It just collects all the accounts I interact with and alerts me of "suspicious behavior". It's how I manage harassment"), message the target repeatedly, use technology to threaten or blackmail the target, send threatening, controlling, or lewd messages, post rude offensive or suggestive comments online". You may say that none of these are you, even down to the blackmail which is shown when you said "Oh, and for anyone else who thinks it wise to do this, don't." (and the rest of that paragraph). And per twitch (https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/how-to-manage-harassment-in-chat) it states "When you are being harassed, there is no one right answer or best approach, only the one that works for you and your situation. Many choose to deny the harasser any attention and quickly timeout or ban them, while others choose to handle it differently. If your go-to approach is not effective for a given harasser, you may experiment with another one. Ultimately, your reaction is up to you." Emphasis on the your reaction is up to you. Also within that same article is "the right combination is whatever makes you feel safe and positive".
    Basically, the twitch streamers can and are encouraged to do what will make them feel safe. Just because someone bans or states what you are in the wrong for does not make them automatically abusing you or hareassing you. You have been the one harassing this UserVoice. And because you seem to believe you are not harassing here, this is the definition: "Harassment is unwanted verbal or physical behavior intended to humiliate and offend you" (given by https://www.findlaw.com/civilrights/discrimination/what-really-constitutes-harassment-and-what-can-i-do.html). Several people have asked you to stop, we all understand you are not for any of this so I am asking you again to STOP.

    Moving on from other things. I was thinking instead of limiting per email 2 accounts (emails can be created just like that) maybe we can use phone numbers instead. It is more difficult unless someone knows how to make a program that can generate them. I know it’s not a fix all solution but can help due to not everyone being tech savvy.

    I don’t think you are quite getting it. Everyone is saying that this is a way to protect streamers who are victims of guess what, abusive viewers. Of course there can be abuse on both sides. The ban list was implemented moreso for the bots back when they were hard to manage across streamers. I am a victim of a groomer who when I cut ties with would not leave me alone. I personally don’t mind having to ban every account they make if they figure out VPNs and the such. I don’t want them being able to see anything with my account whatsoever. That makes me feel comfortable with the abusive viewers not being able to see me and (like I said if they know how to use VPNs) it will at least hinder them somewhat. There is no absolute way to solve anything with the internet but if there is a way to put a thorn in their side to slow them down any of these implementations are worth it. And with the ban list. The only way another streamer sees it is if that streamer specifically shares it with another streamer. It is not this huge ban list that anyone can see. So if you are banned, unless that streamer shares that list with another streamer you watch you will not be affected.

    Overall. This is to hinder those who abuse the current system to help streamers who are stalked, harassed, etc to at least slow down those who know ways around these methods. And I’m not saying their isn’t abuse towards viewers, but the safety of an individual is kind of more important than someone being banned that probably not doing something wrong
