Today, me and many others were targeted in harassment via the developer portal.
At first, we were attempted to be phished. The name of the application and team respectively requested that we disable 2FA on our accounts and change our email to their own. After we refused to do so, we were called slurs such as the N-word, told to kill ourselves, and were and are being spammed with more invites to teams and applications.
I decided to join the team, and noticed I was the only one who had accepted the invite, which directly told me who was the user in question that was spamming these invites. I blocked them, and then left the team before informing the others who were also complaining about being harassed. We continued to get the invites after we blocked them.
Unfortunately, it's impossible to report these to Discord Trust and Safety, as they're not messages.
This isn't okay, and shouldn't happen in the future. My suggestion is that blocks should match on the developer portal and the main Discord site, so that if Person 1 blocks Person 2, Person 2 cannot invite them to a team.
Secondly, please restrict the names of teams to have no slurs. Discord already has the ability to detect bad words in server names, so team and application names should follow suit with specifically slurs (some games do have bad words in the title, so they should be titled appropriately.)
Screw the person who sent us those messages, and thank you for reading. I sincerely hope that something is done.
