Discord to ban you for off-site "hateful" behaviour

<< < (2/20) > >>

  Well...about gab....I went on there to see what was going on, and it looked like a shit show, with some "interesting" videos spammed.   

  Discord though...well it seems that whole social credit thing people had concerns over are filtering into gamer life.  I have used their chat for an online video game, but never anything past that, though the guys whose channel I am on do have a D&D game they run on there.   I wonder how long till one of them gets in trouble (most of the guys are people I barely know, and they are younger and like to pop out an edgy joke from time to time) and it comes to bite them.

  You beat me to the punch on that one.  Does seem a little ominous.  I am sure there will be a build your own call going out again...just no hosting on any of the mega giants that more or less own the various cloud computing networks.

Also, don’t invite anyone you haven’t vetted elsewhere onto your private gaming channels… but that’s just good practice anyway.

So cut off from all social media because Discord and also somehow vet people before inviting them to your discord (how without social media?).

I've a better solution, dump Discord and migrate to https://www.guilded.gg/

Or; In-Person Gaming, around a Real Table.

That won't be done, on my part.  Online life isn't essential.  I promise, we can live without it.

That'll be easy for my current group: The DM is in the UK, 3 players in the USA (1 in Texas and the other two who knows where) and I'm in México.  :-
