As I covered in my last post, twitch recently went live on their official channel to address the controversial hot tub streamers on the platform and stated that they're allowed on twitch as they don't break twitch's terms of services. The person on the stream was djWHEAT, Head of Twitch Community Productions. After the stream, a lot of viewers (especially r/LivestreamFail), were very critical of twitch's statements, to which djWHEAT responded to with a not-so-serious tone, inflaming r/LivestreamFail even further. As of now, the front page of the sub is plastered with his responses. I'll be including a couple threads from my last post to give full context.
The drama starts when someone tweets that they're "severely disappointed" with twitch's statements and that djWHEAT clearly "hasn't watched more than 2 mins of these streams". dJWheat's response: You are correct, I have not watched more than 2 minutes of those streams because that’s not what I watch on Twitch.
-Ignorance to a topic is not a great reason to why they fail to address something that continoues to increasingly be called out as a glaring problem with Twitch's enforcement of TOS. I don't even care if they just remove the sexual content TOS bit and make it allowed --- then atleast they've taken a stance one way or another, but right now they have rules that say this meta shouldn't be a thing (because we all understand what they are selling) but they won't enforce those rules. Atleast they are strangely consistent in how they are always inconsistent in their ability to enforce their TOS appropriately.

I never questioned CeraVe cream because 1. I'd been using tret and needed that extra moisture (I live in the desert) and 2. I could use it from head to toe.
I have been suffering from what I thought was deep, hormonal, cystic acne on my neck, arms and back for well over a year now. It's embarrassing and it's been so painfully awful. I've removed dairy completely from my diet, done Whole30 a few times, tried every topical, gone to very basic skincare (Vanicream cleanser, tret, CeraVe cream and various SPF lotions, including CeraVe spf). I've been to the derm and was prescribed spiroctolane. I ran out of CeraVe in the tub this last time and decided to try something else while getting ready to take Spiro. I wanted to wait until after my second covid vaccine to try that.
Lo and behold, my "hormonal" cystic is nearly gone. It was the damn tub of CeraVe cream that was doing it. I can't believe it. I've never had sensitive skin issues nor do I recall breaking out from any one thing before. Now I don't have to get on Spiro for life and my skin is clearing up. I can't believe I never questioned that shit! I have had no issues using any of their other products, FYI.
Cant wait to tell my derm what a dumbass I am.
That's how my ex husband died. It's been 28 years since I have seen him, but he had remained a threat most of my life.
I have my own personal emancipation day. The anniversary is in two days. That was the day that I left his abusive ways and took a chance on having a life I could enjoy. I was certain he would be furious that I left him. He believed he owned me. He wanted me to have "property of Jay tattooed on my a$$."
He hated me. He didn't trust me. He ignored me most of the time. I was expected to go to work and come home and wait for him. Sometimes he came home. Most of the time he didn't.
When he did come home, he was drunk. I had no choice but to be his hump toy. If I resisted for any reason, he punched walls. I planned my exit for six months. I moved as much stuff out as I could ahead of time. I knew I had one shot at getting away. He had too many illegal firearms. I knew he would likely kill me rather than let me go.
He left for work on May 7, and I sprang into action. I had family members and friends show up to move me out. There were lists in every room of what to take and what to leave. We had my stuff loaded and ready to go by noon.
I moved into a small house with female friend 60 miles away. He found me in three days. That's when the fun really began.
At first he was "nice." He brought me flowers and begged me to come home. I suppose he thought the time he put a gun to my head was not important. It was a gesture of love from him. So was the time he tried to choke me. I knew I was never going back to him.
We had to settle the distribution of property, so I had to continue to have conversations with him. The stalking continued for about six months. My roommate had a dog that she allowed me to sleep with, or I would never have been able to rest. He broke into the house, luckily when we were not there. He pulled all the spark plug wires on my vehicle. He showed up at my workplace countless times. After the divorce was final, he gave up and left me alone, mostly.
When my second marriage ended, he found out about it and attempted to rekindle something with me. On average, he contacted me in some way about every 5 years. I always ignored him.
Now it is over. I can have peace. That's all I ever wanted: for him to let me go.
Twitch has announced that they'll make it easier to "opt out" of viewing specific kinds of content on Just Chatting as a result of the current meta and the backlash as a result.
Here on /r/twitch we've seen an enormous uptick of posts involving the Just Chatting "hot tub" meta over the past 2 weeks and as a result flagged them as 'too repetitive' as indicated in the !!Read Before Posting!! post with details about the meta here.
The purpose of this post was to communicate that changes to Twitch's platform will take place as a result over the controversy of the Just Chatting meta and for a place for people to discuss the changes with civility. New posts outside of this thread are still going to be removed from /r/twitch. Please keep this forum free from sexism, misogyny or any other forms of abuse and continue to follow the /r/twitch rules. Thank you.
Update Edit April 30:
THIS IS SPECULATION: The "Not Interested" button has likely been removed after its use was demonstrated to hide streamers that a viewer didn't want to see, likely as a result of its abuse or issues around the UI/UX of having many viewers use it to custom tailor their own viewing experience. We'll do our best to keep this thread updated.
Update Edit May 1: The "Not Interested" button is back. If you have issues with not wanting to see a specific type of content, use the button.
