Sometimes, when I try to type something on the Crunchyroll livestream, I get a message saying something like "Please mind your manners or you will get banned!". I have no idea what triggers this as it sometimes happens when I type something that doesn't look like it violates the livestream chat rules. Is the message automatic? Or is it something where a moderator manually activates it each time?

Any idea on this?

Thanks.

Have you thoroughly read the chat rules? Typical things that seem to surprise people are:

Asking someone to pose or kiss
Typing in ALL CAPS
Spamming random character strings just to see them scroll.
Ascii "art"
Being the least bit impolite or insulting
Etc..

You can read them all here: /library/Livestream_Chat_Rules and especially open and read the spoiler section. The ban hammer comes pretty quickly if you ignore any of those...

Edit: also pick your words carefully. A simple thing like "rear" may trigger a bot into thinking you are talking about anatomy, not "the back of the crowd"

It's an automatic message when you use certain words. The word list does seem to contain many words that are not especially objectionable, or which may be part of other completely unobjectionable words. We're working on getting the "forbidden word" list trimmed to something more reasonable (and we mods have been asking for that for some time) but we've been given no idea when it will happen--just that eventually it will.

As far as I know, you won't actually get autobanned--the message just won't show up on chat when it contains any of the words on the list. However, I am not 100% certain that an autoban might not kick after many repetitions, so when you type something that triggers it, try not to repeat it.
