even if you click to not collect the data, its collected just "not stored." Certainly seems suspicious to me. If all of this isn't enough to make you get off of Discord then I don't know what is. This also isn't just some random guy ranting about Discord, I used their platform for years and years, met some of my best friends on there, etc, all before I knew about the things that they were doing. I switched to Matrix about 9 months ago and never looked back.

, It contains a process logger that logs all of your open programs and browser tabs, they force many users to give their phone numbers, they have received and complied with government requests from this data, so its very plausible that all of this data is also shared to the government along with their investors and other data brokers, discord uses all of this data for advertising and sale, it doesn't respect user choice on their data

If you're still using Discord, you should stop right now and move to a platform that is encrypted and respects privacy (like Matrix). Discord signed large deals with venture capital firms that include Tencent and many other large anti-privacy, pro-invasiveness companies, they use vague language in their privacy such as "including but not limited to", Discord is closed source and refuse to release any part of their source code, they encourage users to use and link other " spyware" platforms
