despite saying that theyre not in the business of selling your information, they do an awful lot of going through it. everything you post on discord is read by a bot, every link you send on discord is clicked by a bot, and i can prove it.
i found this image a while back proving that the majority of top posters on reddit were bots and i adapted that strategy to discord. so you go to an ip logger site and get a link that when clicked it shows you who clicked it, go to the log of who clicked it and you will see its clear, as it should be. now go onto discord and post the ip logger link somewhere where its not going to be clicked and when you f5 you will notice that within a nanosecond of posting it in discord, the ip logger will show that someone clicked it.
the scary part is that when you look at where the ip leads to, its straight to a fucking american police station. its a big building and doubles as the town hall, im sure they could fit a lot of computers in there. i also wouldnt doubt that literally every other messaging service on the planet is doing something like this, so just be aware.
