    Hi, thanks for flagging this and sharing your suggestion.

    We share and understand your concerns about how the intentional, repeated misuse of tags can undermine the purpose of the tags product itself.  Tags are an important discoverability feature for communities, and a powerful way for all Creators—but especially those that are underrepresented—to express their personal identity and creative vision for their content.

    We also do not feel Twitch should be the judge of Creators’ personal or creative identity, so we typically only enforce against the misuse of tags when it is associated with other behavior that violates our Community Guidelines such as hateful conduct or harassment.

    That said, as the VTuber community’s experience demonstrates, there are limitations to this approach and we are actively investigating additional steps we can take to protect and improve the integrity of the tags feature at scale, without infringing on good faith Creators’ personal choice…

    "We also do not feel Twitch should be the judge of Creators’ personal or creative identity"

    This isn't a "judge" call, either someone is using the VTuber tag as intended and streaming from behind a digital avatar, or they're not. A six year old can look and say, "that's a cartoon face". This isn't an advanced discussion of the sociological concept of identity, either someone is showing their real face or they aren't. It's clearly stated in your rules and you're refusing to enforce it fairly: "Deliberate or extensive misuse of titles, tags, games/categories, or other metadata are prohibited"

    And don't get us started on the "ASMR" tag being used when someone is screaming like a baboon and playing Call of Duty.

    I'm still trying to figure how a woman who streams in a bikini linking to an adult content site in her Twitch "About Me" section is just fine, but someone else reacting to YouTube videos, there's a blurry adult toy in the background for a half second, they're the ones getting a suspension.
