PSBlackListChecker – Added Discord support

It's been less than 24 hours since I've released PSBlackListChecker with support, among other improvements, for Microsoft Teams and Slack and I'm now adding Discord to the mix. Discord was a popular request (well not really, just one person asked, but let's pretend everyone loves PSBlackListChecker so much that they are too shy to ask for feature requests!).

PSBlackListChecker Information
Please notice this article contains parts of information (still useful) and may not reflect all functionalities of this module. For download, source code and so on you should refer to the dedicated PSBlackListChecker module page. After reading this one of course! It contains useful informationexamples, and know-how. Without it, you may not know all the features.
How to use PSBlackListChecker with Discord

There is merely a new section that shows up in the config file, and you will also have to do one little step of installing a module from PowerShellGallery.

Installing module from PowerShellGallery

To be able to use Discord with PSBlackListChecker you need to install an additional module from PowerShellGallery.

Install-Module -Name "PSDsHook" 

This module is open source (sources available on GitHub) and released by Mike Roberts. He was also so kind to add support for PowerShell 5.1 so we can enjoy this great module.
