Banned from TCEC chat

I rarely write anything there and now see that I have been banned permanently. Is this some kind of reversion to Soviet Union and Stalin system ?

No warning about possible wrongdoing, no explanation - just banned.
Must be som 14 year old who finally got some power to abuse.

I remember one of my comments there had also been banned. Can't even remember what it was about. So unimportant it was what I wrote. They are much too strict there.

Maybe it was a Bot who auto-banned you. In the TCEC Chat you have to be really, really careful what you say.

I was permanently banned for using the word "butthurt" back then when they still had the chatwing system. But it was no moderator, it was a script that banned me. No warning or explanation either.

Don't be angry. It won't change a single thing. Play by their rules or don't use the service. Just register a new account and watch you language.

Thanks for the information.
Obviously free speech is not important on Twitch.
It seems all kind of harassment and dictatorial behaviour is OK for the administrators.

I wrote a complaint to Twitch but I don't think that will help.
I have decided never to use Twitch again and will encourage everybody else to do the same.

Best regards
Andreas

This is clearly a haven for immature mini dictators.
I have decided never to use Twitch again and will recommend others to do the same.
I did a search on Google about Twitch and learned that there are a lot of problems with it that are not adressed.

Best regards
Andreas

I wrote about my Maine coon cat "Brownie" and got censored for that. Apparently, there is some double meaning or something.

So you do not have to intentionally write something bad. It can be construed that way by the automatic chat rules in place.

If this was a reversion to Stalin's system you would be dead or on your way to being there. On his personal orders.
