A word about fake HFU accounts.
« on: October 13, 2021, 1826 UTC »
1. All accounts are manually approved so you are just wasting your time trying to create one.

2. It is pretty trivial to make assumptions about who does this sort of thing.

3. Individuals who continue to create fake HFU accounts with Tor, open proxies or other VPNs, which are also easily identifiable, will never be permitted onto Discord.

Иди к черту, малыш.

We've had several attempts by the same individuals to create some fake HFU accounts, for harassment purposes. As Beerus hinted, they're not as anonymous as they may like to believe.

I'd also like to point out that any accomplices face termination of their HFU message board and Discord accounts as well. Permanently.
