Ha! The Discord GDPR/Data Export thing reveals that it's running models to figure out what gender you are. If you go to /activity/analytics/events-*.json and grep for predicted_gender you get something like:

  "user_id": "282657081457115136",
  "predicted_gender": "male",
  "probability": 0.8413839340209961,
  "prob_male": 0.8413839340209961,
  "prob_female": 0.11650349199771881,
  "prob_non_binary_gender_expansive": 0.04211260750889778,
  "model_version": "2024-05-08T00:00:00.000000Z",
  "day_pt": "2024-05-15 00:00:00 UTC"

Anyway, they seem to have this datapoint _over time_! Meaning you can make a graph of how male/female/NB you are according to discord, here is mine:

We want to thank @Mastodon for stewarding us and helping us make this possible.

In the latest @TechOverTeaShow podcast, @BrodieOnLinux and @Conan_Kudo discuss a very important thing about distributing software with non-free licenses, which most people need to understand.

Legally, you might be required to show users the EULA, and might have other conditions on how to redistribute software at all. Skipping these steps "for user convenience" might be breaking the license and give you legal trouble.
