    Why would it be? If a streamer put his link on his name (like most of them do) they cant complaing

    Yeah that's what I was thinking, If they have a direct link to their stream on their name don't they kinda deserve to be sniped?

    It's not bannable as far as my knowledge goes. A streamer has the ability to keep viewers from Stream sniping if they cared enough to do so. I hate seeing streamers complain about sniping, but not cover their screen, the players names, etc, or take precaution to prevent sniping from happening. Plus, what @beatddb said.

    It's a streamers fault if they get snipped

    I hope I am correct but streamers can put a delay on their stream to stop this, but then they cannot interact that fast with the chat

    It's in the rules. So it's bannable, yes.
    Now, to prove it is hard, unless someone truly admits it.

    Some of the bannable offenses:
    -Streaming hostile, hateful behaviour.
    -Stream sniping
    -Achievement hacks, in any way, shape or form.
    -Illicit ways to obtain inventory items
    -Using third-party site or software to join specific games
    -Being a bot

    Stream sniping is indeed bannable but like Runiver pointed out it is almost impossible to prove it unless the person is stupid and admits to doing it. I dont have any sympathy for streamers that get sniped tho. There is plenty of counter measures that can be taken and the ones that are lazy and don't well that is their fault. A good start is not putting your twitch name as your actual steam name and having a link to your twitch in your profile description.

    Yes, i mentioned that in my post. I dont know why people do that but it pretty much is asking to get sniped.

    If:

    Sniping - playing with a streamer who has a link to his stream at his profile/name, watching it to gain additional info on his position, etc, and doing it RANDOMLY (playing with him randomly), then NO

    Sniping - watching a stream of a streamer, then trying to join his lobby, play with him to ruin his game experience multiple times, then YES
