Discord chat history is only available to current members of that
server, and is not publicly archived or indexed. Technically, anyone
running a bot in the server would also have access through their bot
as well. Also, Discord's staff could presumably snoop on the server if
they had a reason to (e.g., it was reported as violating TOS), but the
assumption is that they will not do so unless they have a good reason.
However, keep in mind that if a link to the Discord is published, then
that means anyone could join it on a whim. This could be countered by
restricting access to most channels until a moderator manually assigns
them a role, but this is a bit far fetched. After all, anyone could
join the IRC and log it as well, if they were so inclined
