Bullying, Harassment, and Threats Policy Explainer

Bullying and Harassment

At Discord, we take a firm stance against harassment and bullying. Bullying and harassment is defined as intentional actions that are meant to cause distress or intimidate individuals. This type of behavior can have serious consequences and cause lasting harm to the victims, as well as those who witness it. We are committed to fostering a positive and inclusive environment on Discord, and we expect all users to treat each other with respect.

We will escalate threats to law enforcement if we believe it is required to prevent immediate harm.

For example, you may not post, share, or engage in:
