Dear friends and neighbors in the Linux gaming community,
It has recently come to my attention (thanks to Snailsquatch), that Twitch has eliminated “Linux” from the service’s accepted tags associated with a livestream.
This is unacceptable.
Not only does it specifically hurt our own podcast and its efforts to do outreach for Linux evangelism, of greater concern is how this move cripples end users from finding specific content that is directly relevant to their interests (in this case, Linux gaming).
Please take a moment (it is a two click process) to recommend that Twitch re-add the “Linux” tag to their list of acceptable tags. It will help BLGP, but (most importantly) will help the greater Linux community to better identify, find, and browse content that is *SO* essential to binding us together as a community.
Here's the link where you can tell Twitch to re-add the "Linux" tag, as well as tell them why you think it's a mistake to exclude it from the list of acceptable tags:
Thanks so much for your continued support.

PS: Please also tell your friends about this on t3h 1nterwebz; a permanent link to this entreaty is appended below for you to use as you wish (it links to my tumblr page so you can easily link it via Twitter posts or otherwise). Email it to Linux using friends and please spread the word. Thanks again for your time and attention.
