    what about what I just said is 'centrist'

    It's a fucking emote on a private company's streaming platform, pretty sure caring about such shit is completely unrelated to political leanings
    as for thinking 'FREE SPEECH BAD' is dumb, pretty sure the vast majority of people, from left to right, think it's a dumb as fuck take

    I'm almost certain that the people at BetterTTV could make a vastly superior streaming service than twitch

    I find it pretty stupid they went forth to remove the most popular emote on the platform associated with expressing joy over political drama, yet not emotes like 'WutFace' cmonBruh, 'TriHard' and 'ANELE'. The same emotes that have been abused by the watching audience to suggest racist remarks and various other issues such as terrorism. In fact, the misuse of the emotes became quite severe, that the streamers (such as AsmonGold, Sodapoppin and Forsen) themselves had to blacklist some of the aforementioned emotes from their channels, which eventually even gained some media traction as a result.

    Not that I support this, but if they banned PogChamp, they might as well ban these emotes and hammer some nails into their coffin.

    You are indeed correct, I was supposed to say 'cmonBruh', not WutFace.
    I am making amendments right now.
