It's all very bizarre and a huge waste of time. Imagine all the theory people who spend time in/on ULP could have read. Imagine all the stuff they could have done if not stuck in a discord meme circlejerk.
Discord is like a drug, isn't it? It gives that quick fix of social interaction. I've been to a few discord servers, and it seems that they all value two things: 1) the speed of channels, things have to be moving very fast and there has to be lots of activity to keep users there; 2) variety of discussion topics, there is never a single focus, which results in a potential for more discussion and chance that people will stick around.
Discord servers aren't communities. I mean, you can obviously have a topic-focused, slow discord server, just like you can on many other chat platforms, but that's not what discord is about and that's not what most people think discord is for. So, discord servers aren't communities because they do not have a purpose beyond "a place where people meet", every leftist discord server I've visited had "non-leftist" users. Discord is not a platform for learning, the right-wing members are always allowed to stay because of points 1 and 2 above.
And because of points 1 and 2, discord is not conducive to proper discussion or any kind of development. Conversations move too fast and nobody wants to talk about something that is a long time in the past. There are discord alternatives which have threaded messages and are made fo discussion, but you have to self-host those and it's not as easy to set up as is clicking a plus button in the discord client.
Not to fucking mention that anything and everything you type on discord is sent to the FBI/NSA. This isn't even a joke, but it has been confirmed by Discord. That's why setting up a server is so easy, they want to make it easy for you to provide them information.
Don't be stupid, don't use discord.
