Tips to not get banned
However, it seems that all these streamers and especially those on Twitch had to apply certain rules at the risk of being banned by the platform. Dr. Disrespect and Twitch are like Fortnite and Apple, we love each other and we hate each other.
In 2020, Dr. Disrespect was banned from Twitch for mysterious reasons that led him to sue the streaming platform. Although the official reason has not yet been revealed, the famous mustache had posted a message on Twitter indicating that he had resolved his dispute with Twitch. However, it is not tomorrow the day before yesterday that he will return to it, especially since it is now on YouTube.
Therefore, with this suspension concern, it is stated as a course of action to be taken on Twitch, that discussing a suspended user is prohibited, as stated below.
“All suspensions must be served until they expire or are lifted following a successful appeal process. Any attempt to circumvent an account suspension or chat ban through other accounts, identities, or by appearing on another user’s account will also result in additional punishment against their accounts, up to indefinite suspension.
Additionally, using your channel to knowingly feature or advertise a suspended user is prohibited. We understand that there may be instances where users appear suspended on your stream due to circumstances beyond your control, such as third-party game tournaments. However, we count on you to act in good faith and remove them from your stream, prevent them from communicating with you, or at least limit their interactions with your stream. »
The five-time world chess champion, Hikaru Nakamura, had also suffered the consequences when he watched a chess match between Dr. Disrespect and Dr. Lupo on his Twitch channel. As the result, they banned him for 3 days.
