Ban Bots Running Twitch Streams

Should we ban bots running twitch streams?
 A lot of people in the Pokemon community dislike the fact that certain streamers use bots to run their streams to farm money without any effort. A bot that doesn’t actually do anything. It just keeps the stream running when the streamer isn’t there, and doesn’t provide any stream content. I am not talking about bots like nightbot and deepbot, those bots are good. But I talk about bots that run the stream while the streamer is away.

There are smaller streamers who work extremely hard to get viewers, and these certain streamers take a bunch of viewers by giving away free stuff. I, as well as other streamers on twitch think that the terms of service should include that you can not have a bot or several bots running your stream. That there has to be an interactive streamer talking to their viewers.

I mean, that is what twitch is about, right?
Twitch is about live streaming. LIVE streaming. Not a bot running things. Please sign this petition so that we can attempt to get these bots stopped.
