The issue with the Discord ban mega-thread
If you have been around on the glitch forum for a while, you may have seen the discord ban mega-thread. It’s the spot to report banned IPs. But unfortunately, it is an endless loop. The scammers who get their bots banned are also likely posting them. When they get sent to a new host, that host will get banned, and so on. If we want this problem to end, I have a few ideas.
Idea 1: The pricey but more user-friendly idea.
To stop this, Glitch would have to give each user a unique IP. If they got a bot banned, all of their bots would be banned and Glitch could look into the problem to see if they need to take action. This, in an ideal world, would be the solution. The issue is that getting everyone an IP would cost a very, very large amount of money.
Idea 2: The cheap but not so user-friendly idea.
When a new Glitch account is created, the user would have to enter a credit card. Discord spammers probably don’t have lots of cards, so this would, in theory, work, but it causes another issue. Most people using Glitch will not want to put in a credit card because of the fear they could get charged or scammed.
