"We wrote software to do most of the moderation for us but that software isn't allowed to read the Reddit new feed fast enough and submit responses, and the admins haven't given us special access despite asking for it," zjz writes. "We're suffering from success and our Discord was the first casualty. You know as well as I do that if you gather 250k people in one spot someone is going to...

    The WallStreetBets subreddit , which has seen a significant increase in attention in recent days following the meteoric rise in GameStop's stock driven in part by traders on the forum, has been made private.

    Discord has banned the r/WallStreetBets server, the company confirmed to The Verge. Reddit's WallStreetBets subreddit is the driver of an unprecedented rally of GameStop stock, and has received a great deal of attention in the press as the stock continues to soar.
    Discord says it did not ban the server for financial fraud - rather, it was banned because it continued to allow “hateful and discriminatory content after repeated warnings.” The Verge gained access to the server and can confirm the claim that users of the channel were spamming hateful...
