.@DiscordApp’s first transparency report is a meaningful step toward combating online hate & harassment through real transparency, which other #tech platforms can learn from. We look forward to collaborating with them to further expand their efforts. More: https://t.co/hxRpe3XrqM

I kept telling you guys about this app.
Seriously, I did.
- Please Stop Using Discord. The SPLC is Monitoring You.
- If You Don’t Get Off Discord, You’re an Idiot
Now the Jewish Anti-Defamation League is just outright telling you that it’s their favorite platform because of how hard they shill.
From the ADL site:
Social media platforms are the new public squares, and their impact on society—both for good and for ill—will only continue to grow. At the same time, the way social media companies operate—especially in terms of how they govern hateful, harassing and extreme content—is alarmingly opaque. Efforts toward public transparency by large social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube—while welcome—have been insufficient to date. For this reason, the first transparency report from the online chat platform Discord, released yesterday, is a welcome addition to these initiatives to make tech companies’ efforts at combating hate and harassment more transparent, though there are some not-insignificant shortcomings.
Discord’s transparency report is more granular than its predecessors from other companies, offering more details about content and behavior. For example, Discord’s report includes the number of times a user has flagged doxxing on their platform and the number of times they have taken action as a result of this. It also provides helpful descriptions of each of the types of reported content included in the report, which makes it easier for the reader to understand, instead of simply linking back to platform policies and expecting the reader to figure out what the citations mean.
This is nonsense.
The actual reason they are praising it is that this platform turns over private information to them willingly.
Note that they do not demand that Discord ban anyone in this review, even while huge numbers of right-wingers are operating on the platform.
They want people on there.
You should not be on there.
We know that Jews are obsessed with collecting information on people who dislike them, but we don’t really know what they do with it. This should concern you.
You should use DLive instead. That doesn’t make you install anything and all the chats are public so you don’t get to thinking you can privately share private information.
