Inorganic Denial: A thread

Inorganic Denials Explainer

Note: This document tries to provide clear and detailed explanations only. It does not and cannot contain ways to "fix" this error because there is no fix. Read further to understand why this is happening to you.

Also, a disclaimer: I do not represent Discord, I don't have access to inside information that hasn't been said in public, I am by no means an authority on this subject but I wanted to clarify things for people that were wondering. Also it's easier linking this than copy/pasting messages all the time.

In recent weeks and months there has been an increasing number of bot owners that have seen their bot denied verification through an email sent by Discord. The wording of this email is:

Based on your bot's growth, it's clear that you joined a number of servers inorganically in order to grow your bot and qualify for verification. Therefore, we cannot verify your bot.

The Flat Earth model is just plane wrong!

There's been so much arguments from flatties about how the "ball earth model" doesn't work and has no proof. Well, someone on the internet (not me, I can't take credit for this and I can't find the source) decided they had enough, and they made a list of all the massively obvious flaws in the idea that we live on a flat earth.

So here it is. Flat Earthers:

  • Have no complete working model or map which encompasses all their explanations. Oh there's a few models alright, but they actually contradict one another!
  • Have no way to determine proper distances or directions between two point on the earth not sharing the same longitude.
  • Have no explanation for how the sun and the moon circle the earth, or how the sun migrates from the tropic of Capricorn to the tropic of Cancer and back over the year.
  • Have no idea why the ancient Greeks such as Pythagoras, Aristotle, Eratosthenes and Aristarchus believed the earth was a sphere.
