    Related to your ad insertions: whether on Twitch or another site, we get the purple blockade. Using ad-block methods have become reasonable to avoid malicious advertising and advertising-related scripts. Telling us not to use them is akin to saying "turn off your firewall and play in traffic". Now we have streams interrupted telling us to go to Twitch (where we may already be) to be interrupted by ads, the same purple blockade, or other disruptions.

    Way to take 4 years to acknowledge how much we hate ads. I come to watch certain streams, not to watch unrelated (and perhaps deceptive/offensive content) paid for placement by profit-obsessed organizations that takes the place of the desired content which continues in progress. It's not like you pause the stream with a buffer... it's SKIPPED until we get a chance to watch the replay video, if that's even worth doing.

    This is how a service fully commits to showing that they have lost the purpose of their service. This completely says "Our purpose is to show you ads, and you have no choice about their timing or content" and not "You can see what a user you chose is hosting for you to see."
