I dont know wtf you are talking about. But nothing going on here has anything to do with discord. You are so offtopic....

I'll just say off the bat, Discord bans users for breaking the rules, not accounts. The difference being that just because someone creates a new account to join a server doesn't mean that discord will ban their new account unless that new account broke the rules. So this mostly becomes a server issue.

You can only do so much to identify one account that may belong to the same user on a different account, such as the username, connected accounts, things they say, etc.

You can raise the server moderation level to require 10 min in server, or even double table flip to require phone verification which basically puts ban evasion to a stop as most people don't have more than 1, 2 phones tops if they include a work phone.

Then it just comes down to your own moderation abilities, using a bot (or spreadsheet) with notes capabilities and just remove people who break your rules.

Edit: I was incorrect, discord may take action on an account for ban evasion.

Today 1 minute before this post there was a new member (yes a yellow one) spamming quotes, this bot made around 5 posts and got banned. Was it automatically? If it was then good job! if it wasn't then good job anyways, it was fast.

The obvious place to start is competing automation languages. There are several out there. You can possibly have a demented person or a group of them from different languages that think they can diminish competition by attacking and disrupting other languages and websites.

The next group are spammers trying to spread advertisements and malware. To include steal contact information, etc... These activities can range from dumb pranksters to definitely hard core criminal activity. Such types often don't care what type of havoc and destruction they inflict on the Internet, because their goal is monetary gain through illegal activity or getting off on being disruptive.

You mean report it as a cyber crime ?
Yes. Otherwise, how do you expect they will do something about it? I'm surprised people don't report such attacks and demand action.
It's difficult in USA, because NSA is a military agency. NSA is the agency which oversees the flow of information in USA (that's weird for a democracy). But still the complain may be made through the FBI. They work together. And there will be a record of this.

What is the source of the attack? Obviously, IP's are spoofed or it's 'man in the middle' attack (or DNS hack), but it can be easily detected by NSA. If spammers are doing it for long time, they cannot escape getting caught. Even TOR does not give anonymity, since it's a US military network (and if you control all the routers, there is no way to escape detection). There is no anonymity for this kind of hackers. Why do they still exist and thrive?
That's certainly not coming from any state enemy of USA.
Why the US gov isn't doing anything to stop it? Why NSA (Pentagon), which monitors everything, doesn't do anything about it? I don't want to assume they are doing it or some allies (UAE, Israel), but that's really weird. What's the benefit of the Big Brother system in such a case?
NSA controls all the internet traffic (routers), spends huge amount of money on spying, recording virtually everything. But hackers like that have no problems. No convictions. No real FBI cases. Like they don't care, or the perpetrators are protected.
I would officially demand action from FBI and other agencies.

Triggered a notification email to every registered member....My apologies to those adversely affected but with limited time this is the best solution to the current crisis.
Thanks for all the hard work tank - was annoying as this happened to me, but glad to know that you are just trying to protect the community here. Sorry you and all the moderators had to go through that! Thanks to all the mods who took / are taking care of these issues!

On a side note, I did not receive an email or notifications from this spam attack.
