Either pay up or go the fuck away. I'd prefer you did the latter, but I can see some benefit from the former, too.
What if suddenly..... paid stream chat drives the people that desire free stream chat into IRC?I think free stream chat ought to be a good thing, because back in the day of the arcades, it didn't cost anything to simply walk in and join in on the hype of people watching a hype match. If anything, there ought to be MORE ways for the remote audience to cheer for what's happening, ways that are both free and that allow donations/monetary support/fees. We are fans and homers just like the fans and homers of every other thing that has fans and homers. We should have our equivalents of flags and banners and vuvuzelas and all that other junk that you can wave or make noise with. Rather than trying to clamp off hype that seems rude and crude, we should be looking to for ways to include it as well, even if it needs to be segregated from the other fans in the same way as people at a soccer stadium.
