But according to the U.S. Department of State and reliable sources, this law never applied to providing free-of-charge services to the people of these countries, but to transactions and paid features. (For Discord that would be Nitro subscriptions, Server Boosts, etcetera.)
Iranian people have nothing to do with nor support terrorism. Terminating their accounts would result in an irreparable damage to the Persian communities on the platform with thousands of members located in countries like Iran.
Although the new Terms of Service are meant to go into effect on 28 March 2022, many Iranian users have already reported experiencing issues with their Discord accounts for absolutely no reason. Normal people do not deserve to be punished for the actions taken by the government of their country.
We definitely do not expect Discord to violate the U.S. laws as an American company, but still ask you to make a reconsideration about the updated Terms of Service immediately since this law is suspended to be misunderstood by the Discord Policy Team.
Note: This post will continue to get updated as I collect more information regarding the case.
