DISCORD LITERALLY JUST CARPET BANNED 16 SWAMP STAFF MEMBERS JUST FOR ASSOCIATION WITH ME!!!!
ALL BANNED ACCOUNTS WERE CLAIMED TO HAVE POSTED "DEHUMANIZING CONTENT" AND THIS IS DEMONSTRABLY FALSE! MOST OF THESE BANNED USERS WERE TOTALLY SFW AND NEVER POSTED ANYTHING OFFENSIVE (NOT EVEN ON ALTS); THEY WERE PURELY DELETED FOR GUILT BY ASSOCIATION WITH ME BECAUSE I CREATED THIS ARTICLE: https://swamp.sv/discord/
DISCORD MODERATORS ARE FAT PATHETIC LOSERS WHO CARELESSLY BAN PEOPLE WITH ZERO JUSTIFICATION IN ORDER TO FEEL POWERFUL! FUCK YOU DISCORD! BAN MY NEW ACCOUNT I DARE YOU
IF YOU JUST GOT BANNED WITHIN THE LAST FEW HOURS COMMENT BELOW SO WE CAN KEEP TRACK OF IT.

DISCORD HAS TERMINATED MY PERSONAL ACCOUNT FOR MY PREVIOUS POST CALLING OUT THE OBVIOUS INJUSTICE OF THEIR REPEATED TAKEDOWNS OF OUR SERVER

If you want a true vision of a dystopian future, look no further than Discord. You have this platform which fronts as a whimsical and friendly community platform, with software interspersed with cute little messages like "FIRIN TEH OVER 9000 NYAN CAT LAZORZ" throughout the interface. But in reality their "policy enforcement" is even more opaque, arbitrary, and unjust than even the silicon valley titans.
Our community server has been taken down nearly 10 times by Discord's moderation. *Every time they take down the community server, they also disable the account of whoever created the server.*
Apparently Discord expects servers, including public servers, to be moderated by the owner, and will hold the owner personally liable for any message which any anonymous public person posts on it and isn't immediately removed.
Not only does Discord expect us to essentially do their jobs for them *(no other major website does this - ever heard of a youtube channel getting terminated because of rude comments on their videos?)*, but they won't even give us basic information about how to do it other than "the TOS".
Every time they nuke us, the server owner's account recieves an email like this:
This is ***LIBELOUSLY*** untrue, because ***THIS ACCOUNT HAS LITERALLY NEVER POSTED A SINGLE MESSAGE ON DISCORD*** and the account only exists to make the server with.
After that ban, the following exchange happened with their "support":
(no response after the last message)
So to summarize: Discord nukes our server constantly, won't tell us why other than extremely vague reasons, holds me personally liable for every message that is posted on my 1000+ user public server, and keeps nuking us despite our best efforts to enforce their extremely vague TOS.
Discord bans MY PERSONAL FUCKING ACCOUNT, PURELY because of GUILT BY ASSOCIATION because some random dude on my PUBLICLY JOINABLE SERVER WITH 1000 PEOPLE said a message that they didn't like. We usually have no idea what the message that got us banned was; we think the latest ban was caused by a message essentially saying "child molestors should be chemically castrated" but Discord has not confirmed or denied this.
Discord's insane communistic policy enforcement leaves us in a state of absolute paranoia about what kind of message may or may not get us banned again, and this is intentional on their part. This is our future: vague laws, selective enforcement, no freedom of speech, no due process whatsoever, no semblance of justice or fairness; just some unknown, unaccountable bugman in an office in San Francisco making arbitrary decisions.
Right now these pathetic and contemptuous people control what we're allowed to talk about on the internet; soon they'll control our entire lives.
***GO TO HELL, DISCORD!***
One more: Discord clearly expects us, server owners/moderators, to read EVERY SINGLE MESSAGE to prohibit disallowed content. At the same time, Discord themselves do not proactively scan any message and they only take things down in response to reports. If whatever backend services Discord uses (AWS etc) expected their policies to be enforced the same way Discord expects us to enforce THEIR policies, DISCORD WOULD NOT LAST A SINGLE FUCKING DAY, it is not even remotely feasible to scan every single message to prevent any prohibited content from appearing at all but that is exactly the insane, unreachable standard that they are selectively holding us to.
