As they relate to imageboards, they draw posters away from imageboards. The sort of posters they tend to attract, though, are the ones who post in generals. As for raiding groups, those can/will form out of any messaging service, discord is no different in this regard. Discord just has an air of infamy to it, which acts as a self-fulfilling prophecy keeping out people who are put off by that reputation. I don't like them because I can't type nearly as fast as others, so by the time I finish trying to say something, someone else will have already said something and moved the conversation in another direction. I also really dislike the sort of clique formation that happens, since it really discourages "out-group" people not part of that clique from posting.>>13431>anon group chat with names is fine.
I don't know about that. I feel like regardless of what sort of chatroom it is, chatrooms by their very nature attract people who will form an identity for themselves and will create cliques or sub-groups all the same.
