Just created my first discord server after seeing so many people from here mention it. The questions I have are, why? What makes it better than say slack or something else? Is it prone to spam or bots? How is it for gaming?

    It has a lot of gaming integrations and so far i never had a problem with spamming. The API is relatively easy to use and the bot community is usually nice.

    The target audience are gamers, who don't want to pay for a communication service. Slack is superior in every aspect I can find, except that you need to pay to get infinite message logs.

    Discord is just like Skype and slack but for gaming. Also, lots of integrations in gaming

    Slacks backend is poorly written in PHP and their API is as pleasant as crabs from street hookers.

    @tekashi have you seen how much RAM and CPU that slack takes up!? I restarted computer and when slack launched it was taking up 80% of my i7-8700k! Fuck electron and fuck whoever's idea of was to have each slack group be its own process!
