Thanks to streaming video services, fans can binge watch an entire episode, an entire season or an entire series.
It's become such a part of popular culture that we all recognize when someone says their binging a show or that they're going to "Netflix and chill."
But some users of that particular streaming website would like the service to chill out and let them binge.
Twitter user Adam Ellis—or @moby_d*head—took to social media with a message for Netflix. With an image of that question displayed on a TV screen, Ellis stated:
"For the last F***ING TIME, the answer is ALWAYS YES"
"Are you still watching (insert your binge choice here)?"
Ellis' answer resonated with MANY Netflix subscribers.

People thought Netflix's concern should lie elsewhere.

Some owners do actually leave a streaming service on for their pets to watch or hear while they're out of the house.

Another common use is as a sleep aid.
That question was a problem for those users too.

People suggested a new "binge" setting.
@moby_dickhead There needs to be a binge-watching setting that disables that. I mean it's 2019, for fucks sake.— i am a meat popsicle (@i am a meat popsicle)1552340392.0

Finally, someone responded that had the answer for why Netflix asks the question.
"How can I be sure though?"
