The document appears to contain the biographical information of thousands of people who signed a public petition from April condemning the Trump administration.
On Saturday night, a user named kanuke7 posted a pastebin link into the largest Discord server for Trump supporters, Centipede Central.
Discord is essentially Slack, but for gamers. It also has audio functionality. The Centipede Central server was created by members of the /r/The_Donald subreddit. Trump supporters refer to themselves as centipedes, which is a reference to a YouTube series called “Can’t Stump The Trump” that mashed up footage of President Trump in a Republican debate with audio from a nature documentary about a centipede killing a tarantula.
The Discord server has close to 2,000 active users. BuzzFeed News has reached out to kanuke7 for comment.
The document posted by kanuke7 has since been removed, but according to a copy of it obtained by BuzzFeed News, it contains the names, addresses, phone numbers, and links to the social media accounts of thousands of people.

The document appears to be incomplete, but it has guidelines for how to add to it. It also makes a point of attempting to identify the religious affiliation and sexual orientations of people listed.
It also comes with instructions on how to find and compile information on people. The process is called doxing.
