    I’ll never understand why certain people don’t like this message. I use Discord every day, and have been for years, but I still hate it. Other than the fact they collect so much data and does god knows what with it, I despise the fact that SO many communities rely on it for things like support, instead of using publicly accessible websites and forums. I don’t want to go through my list of servers to find one to leave so I can join yours just to find the answer to a simple question, or to be involved in the decision making process.

      are you me? Cause I was confused as fuck cause i could not remember making this post.

      Cause I’ve been saying the same exact shit.

      Discord is fine for friday night fuckaround with your gaming friends.

      it is not a repository of information, and shouldnt be treated as such, because it can not be indexed and archived… So the overwhelming bulk of people that need that information will never find it, and that information will be lost when the discord disappears.

      same reason it shouldnt be used as a support system.

      Or anything else.

      I use it too when I need to talk to people. It’s a good tool, but it is absolutely nothing else positive. I would love a better tool to come and replace it.

      Why people have decided to keep information I used to be able to freely search for there is unfathomable to me.
