    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.

    THE No.1 Alex, this would be a bad idea as this means that the front end system can access IP's people will firgure out how to use this for bad things no sense in giving people a chance at that.

    IP Ban is a very bad Idea. If a troll gets an ip banned he can easily get his IP changed or anonimized. While if this IP gets released and is banned the next person who gets the IP will not be able to watch Twitch...

    See how this can be bad? Not everyone has a permanent IP around the world. Now if we could ban Mac Address's thats another thing but computers don't generally give out mac address's freely IIRC.

    you mean you mute it when you can... Not all ads will even mute! This is a bug that really needs to be worked on. If you are going to have ad's make them less obtrusive and make me want to leave a stream when i cant even mute or lower the volume of the ad. This sort of thing promotes ad blocking and we don't want that!
