Discord drops the hammer on data-scraping ‘Spy.pet’ website, says it is ‘considering appropriate legal action’

A week after a report revealed a site called Spy.pet that claimed to have scraped billions of public messages posted to Discord and was offering them for sale, Discord has banned multiple accounts connected to the site, which has now gone offline.

Discord said when Spy.pet was first reported that it was “investigating the matter,” adding that “if we determine that violations of our Terms of Service and Community Guidelines have occurred, we will take appropriate steps to enforce our policies.” And so it has: A new 404 Media report says Spy.pet was at one point scraping as many as 14,000 Discord servers, but that number had trailed down to 0 by April 25. The site itself is now offline.
