The Appeal of Discord

Why is it that I constantly see people trying to plug their Discord channels? It goes beyond simply a means of contact and suddenly it's how you introduce yourself.

What few subreddits I look at have stickies at the top saying LINK TO OUR DISCORD CHANNEL. What the fudge? I'm on Reddit, I don't want to join your dirty Discord channel, why are you trying to upstage your subreddit for it.

It's very freaking weird. But it's so omnipresent I'm interested into why people are obsessed with the shameless promotion.

Is it a meme?

It's a decentralized version of reddit (and forums) that individuals have power over (rather than reddit admins, etc).

Also discord doesn't really care if you have really shitty or illegal things on there.
