Former 8chan users said to be moving to Discord; does "who you attract" because of circumstances put you in danger?

CBS News has a potentially important story about how former 8chan users are now signing up on Discord.

Discord is popular with gamers and allows anonymous chat, but was not set up with the “right wing” or absolutism in freedom of speech in mind.

8chan was pulled from Cloudflare (content delivery network) after the El Paso incident. 8chan was also removed from web hosting, according to Wikipedia, a disturbing trend.  Are websites or services responsible for “who they attract”?  The same question had occurred with Sunscribestar in late 2018.
