Discord decided to ban the r/WallStreetBets server after receiving multiple warnings about the hateful and discriminatory content published in that server and had nothing to do with the ongoing GameStop stock drama.
The banned was confirmed by Discord, but not for the financial fraud: “hateful and discriminatory content after repeated warnings”, the messages includes racial discrimination.
Discord made a statement to explain the motivation of the ban:
“The server has been on our Trust & Safety team’s radar for some time due to occasional content that violates our Community Guidelines, including hate speech, glorifying violence, and spreading misinformation. Over the past few months, we have issued multiple warnings to the server admin.
Today, we decided to remove the server and its owner from Discord for continuing to allow hateful and discriminatory content after repeated warnings.
To be clear, we did not ban this server due to financial fraud related to GameStop or other stocks. Discord welcomes a broad variety of personal finance discussions, from investment clubs and day traders to college students and professional financial advisors. We are monitoring this situation and in the event there are allegations of illegal activities, we will cooperate with authorities as appropriate.”
After the ban, the administrators expresed the nonconformity with the ban which you can red from here.
Earlier this month Disscord banned another pro-Trump server that had been associated with another server also banned.
The truth is that server was a total caos.
