[Suggestion] Members (and bots) shouldn't get the server's user list unless they have access to the channels the user list is visible in.

    I've also had issues with this, and instead of disabling all PMs this sounds like a great solution to the problem. Hopefully discord takes the feedback of its users seriously.

    I've specifically been in contact with the discord community team and been informed that allocating users to roles only when trusted is the optimal solution to server spam.

    Only after this process did we determine that in fact, the bots just get the server list anyway.

    Discord might not have realized yet that the size of the platform they've created has (as is always the case) created ancillary businesses that aim to advertise utilizing the platform. There's groups that intentionally build and advertise information on discord if you pay them to do so, and many groups that attempt to do the same thing for themselves as they see it as a free and easy marketing system.

    Imagine for example if facebook was flooded with random people sending you advertising messages? Or for example if twitter had random people constantly messaging you about how you should buy this next great big thing.

    Sadly the choice these two companies took was just to force the advertisers to pay them to advertise to those random people. But discord still needs to take these lessons to heart.

    We've been raided by spam bots for weeks that DM people. They just keep comming. There is nothing we can do but ban them as they come ASAP but sometimes they come by the minute. This would give us some solution.

    We've had our server plagued with spam bots like this too. If this is the case, then our attempt to stop it is going to fail.

    Bumping this since it's been almost a year and big discord servers are still a bot fiesta.
