    You guys are looking at it the wrong way. Instead of allowing any bot to cause havoc and mischief on a channel and then ban it individually or in bulk, why not restrict bot access and only if the user authorizes a bot should it ever be present. For everyone else, the user should be a confirmed human and signed in order to chat or interact with the channel. I see a bunch of bots lurking on my channel right now. They can't chat because I have restricted chat feature to followers only. But they are there "watching" the channel. Does that count against me as artificial inflation of views? I do not know. I did not invite robots, nor do I want them there. I hope Twitch will re-think their approach to bots, and the user to take control over what bots are allowed and ban the rest by default.
