Discord has been in the news for some bad reasons this year, most recently for having teased some sort of NFT integration—which it almost immediately walked back. Some of the best thirdparty apps for the software have been killed off, the company’s sky-high valuation of $15 billion opens all sorts of questions about what its future looks like, and on the ground level it continues to face the day-to-day problems of any big social service: spammers and grifters and bots, oh my! 

A recent blogpost by Discord’s safety team goes into some detail about how Discord combats spammers generally, and is interesting because it reveals how a giant organisation like this breaks down the problem.
