It was kinda annoying for me, for the same reason you stated: privacy. I have a Twitch account, but honestly it's only because of the HS benefits from having Twitch Prime, which I was eligible for since I'm Amazon Prime anyway.
The part that worries me a bit is that I do purchasing online from Amazon (obviously) so they have my card info. If HPwn is merging, does that mean they could potentially have access to that info as well? Who knows, but I say most likely yes it's possible. There's no reason why I would want this site to have any kind of bank information, so it does feel sketchy.
If I would have thought about it, I would have made a separate Twitch account just for this site, but oh well.

I could careless, however, I completely understand your reasoning behind wanting it to be optional. Even as someone who was like, "Sign me up!" the second I got the message, I support your thoughts on the matter in how it should be an optional merge of accounts.
You guys talk like anyone cares about your information, which apparently is super important because why would you feel insecure and feel like it's putting your privacy at risk, no one gives a duck about your info, you're seriously not that important to be special snowflakes that someone needs info about and for those reasons will somehow disrupt your privacy, seriosly chill tf out, you just watch too much TV.
