So many people are well aware of issues of twitch chats. Lots of people handle themselves in a fairly immature or inappropriate manner. But there is another problem I think that contributes to these problems and that is bad moderators in chats. Mods should conduct themselves in a professional manner. And many of them do a great job, they promote the streamer and they ban spammers quickly. But some mods abuse the power given them. Often times they will threaten people with timeouts if they disagree over whatever the topic may be, they ban people they don't personally get along with, or they talk in a demeaning way to other viewers. If people can't be polite and positive they really should just close the chat window and leave those trying to chat alone. I saw it today for example, in AGL's stream where mods were bashing on the AGL tournament. The streamer puts a level of trust in his or her mods. And when a moderator abuses the power given them it reflects badly on the Halo community as a whole and detracts from the joy of the viewers. When people tell other people in chats things like 'go kill yourself' it really is just uncalled for. And a lot of people say "well it is a twitch chat what do you expect"? Or "it is just a chat who cares"? But this view doesn't get anyone anywhere. People need to be respectful of other's views. Let's not take a step backwards when Halo as a whole is still trying to move forwards. Keep Calm. Stay Dersky.
