Trophy hunt fan site PSNProfiles bans Discord, communities, and regular play sessions to try and make it harder for people to play together. Gaming in a group makes it a lot more fun, sadly, PSNProfiles has a different perspective on this.
When reaching out to the site PSNP employee Beyondthegrave he replied with the following:
No exceptions being made and the point of the rule is to make it much harder.
Over the past 3 years, a lot has changed, and the environment around PSNProfiles has attracted a lot of toxicity since then. Stuff like death threats, harassment, and massive troll groups is not something new, but making it harder for people to connect and make friends is a strange one.
In late 2020 PSNProfiles also already banned linking to other websites for guides to promote their own guide system more and endorsed/covered people that copy content from other sites.
