Forums - General Discussion - WOW DrDisrespect Banned permanently from Twitch

I think he has done something very bad and that he is not banned for anything we see in the OP,what that is we will see in the coming day i guess.
Not that we are entitled to know any private things.

Well if that is the case, then Twitch is guilty of helping him hide it and paying off people to keep it a secret.

I'd wait until we actually have an official explanation. That seems incredibly sus (unless you have more than just a random image to back it up).

He was also banned from discord and lost his official discord badge

Which just makes your explanation make less sense. Why would he be banned across multiple platforms for something that seems to be limited to the Twitch back end? Nobody is denying that he was banned, it is just that the completely unsupported reasoning you posted seems like nonsense. 

Like I said before, wait until we actually get an explanation from someone who isn't an anon.



No idea who the guy is and couldn't really care less, but also think twitch look like the bad guys here. Like, whatever the guy did/didn't do let people decide themselves if they still want to support him or not. Wouldn't be half as bad if there were alternatives for him to go to, but there kind of aren't. Aren't twitch owned by the same company as youtube or something? I dunno, but it seems like all of these big internet companies are inter-linked which should surely be in violation of anti-monopoly laws... but apparently not?

Twitch is owned by Amazon

Youtube is owned by Google

Facebook Gaming is owned by Facebook

Mixer was owned by Microsoft, but has recently decided to shut down and has partnered with Facebook to migrate existing users.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

who owns discord?

Discord doesn't appear to be owned by any larger corporation, however, it has received funding from Warner (they sold their share during AT&T acquisition), Tencent and various capital investment firms. The owner of Discord is the developer Hammer & Chisel.



According to two streamers it's not anything to do with his stream or any DMCA, the seems to be some legal thing involved because neither is allowed to give any details on the reasoning. The speculation that it's because he cheated would be odd as well because many notable people cheat as unfortunate as that is marriage is not really the concern of any platform holder which suggests the may be a darker element to this especially as it's happening across multiple platforms.

The only indication something is up is on his last stream where his received a message on his phone which he read and his demeanor changed along with him stopping the stream shortly after.

So it is an oligopoly and not a monopoly.  Still doesn't give me a warm fuzzy feeling.  Not that I care about streaming business but every market in US is either a monopoly, duopoly, or oligopoly. 

There hasn't been any major breaking up since AT&T which then southwestern bell proceeded to buy up all the other Bells and allowed to be named AT&T again.  They then bought Cingular wireless and cricket for foothold in the cell industry and then was allowed to buy direct TV. 

No worries I'll just keep to myself the rest of my life and die happy in a Taco Bell hospital.
