Twitch ban Asmongolds alt account for racist content from other players using in-game chat (Up: Unbanned, Twitch realise their stupidity)

The fact that kicking off on twitter is the only way to get them to respond, if you have millions of followers, is devastating for small channels.

I’m pretty sure he understands. He’s saying why should you or anyone care? Streamers to me offer nothing to society IMO. If anything it degrades it. Ya it’s bullshit but it’s hard to care for someone that makes money offering nothing to society but playing games and collecting cash
Yeah, but that's not the point Faust Faust was making.

You'd be annoyed if you got banned here because I replied to you with something racist or the like. Of course, you could move on and visit another forum or just no forums as it all means nothing. But you'd still be annoyed.

If this was something he did with his own two hands, I'd be in the "who cares lol," camp, myself, because if you're old enough to figure out how to stream, you should be old enough to not be ignorant.

But given this is another example of someone "controversial," getting smacked down for someone else's behavior, it just goes to show Twitch is a platform ran by trained monkeys.

The comparison has been raised before, I'm certain, but this is like going to a bank to withdraw money for house renovations, witnessing a bank robbery from a guy who lives out of state, and being thrown in jail for it. Like, dude has millions of followers, cool. I'll bet he still hasn't mastered mind control, though.

Ya but if I got banned unjustly why would anyone care? Would you care? You don’t know me. You might say it’s bullshit and move on. Especially if you believe me being on GAF is unimportant

There are two levels of caring in my book, and people often conflate them together creating your argument:

1. Direct caring
If my girlfriend gets sick, if my son breaks his leg, if I get fired. I'm emotionally and substantially bothered by these things and they directly impact me. This isn't what's being said here.

2. Empathic or worldview caring
Being able to recognize a morally or socially corrupt standard or event as bad, wrong, or problematic. I didn't know anyone at Sandy Hook, I didn't pay hospital bills, or seek therapy, or throw up or cry, but I could recognize that, principally, it's a tragedy, and it affects people other than myself. This is why we evolved mammal brains. Our inner reptiles are self serving, conceited survivalists, but we've developed the condition of perspective, empathy, and social integration.

Yeah, something doesn't affect you immediately and directly, and that's well and good until it does. Allowing immoral shit to continue with no pushback just sets somebody else up to get fucked, and they'll probably wish other people cared about the issue, too, when they're being affected by it.

Quick edit: And I'm not saying we should all be philanthropists over every injustice in the world, either. I mean, in your example, I'm sure you're an alright guy, but if you got banned from GAF, I probably wouldn't give or pretend to give half of a fuck. We all have to choose which arenas and causes are worth fighting for, and trust that others will cover our blindspots.

I keep seeing these threads about streamers being banned from youtube / twitch and I'm literally like



If they were neogafers then I might pay some interest. But beyond that I don't understand the running commentary on them. Unless it's a socail media thing where these individuals have large followings, which someone is interpreting as them being important to the wider gaming community?

What really throws me off about it

its always one of the worst streamers a few of which have laughed at and shit on NeoGaf directly

Asmongold, Boogie, Reviewtechusa, Theactman ect. are all woke lying shitbags who attack people over bullshit

if its truly unfair so be it but all those dudes suck who cares if they get banned

I think it's mostly related to the fact that when bullshit happens to small streamers, it's largely unnoticed. Think about it like pop music. There's some dude in France absolutely shredding on an 8 string doing arpeggios with his tongue and playing the piano with his penis at the same time and we're blaring Vince Staples.

Larger streamers got large because they had that same level of obnoxious character performance that those 3 AM "SLAP THAT SUBSCRIBE BUTTON AND BUY MY MERCH," youtubers have.
