Allocated moderators on twitch.tv are discriminated against many times each day.
Pressured to act like robots, mods are no longer supposed to 'be themselves' when given the responsibility to ensure the safety and enjoyment for both streamer and viewer.
This position is also seen as currency, as people enter different streams solely to be granted mod permissions. Mods are therefore frequently bombarded because they have a position that others want.
By signing this petition, you are agreeing that there should be an option to be a mod without displaying the sought-after badge which identifies them, and removing moderator user lists in the chat box, therefore protecting them from being prejudiced upon. A more discreet moderator role would allow a stream to be protected, and those working can enjoy themselves and speak freely too. The chat room would essentially become more equal, as mods are often considered higher-value members, going against a communities values.
