Slack banned Blind

I downloaded the app and tried to register with my corporate email account. Email never came though. Looks like those emails are blacklisted. Wow. I had to use the Linkedin authentication. There’s so much drama at this company and reading all these posts about how favorable people see Slack (even through they never worked here) is a bit concerning

    Don’t worry product is still solid. However the company has grown to about 1300 people in two years so there’s so much confusion and role misalignment across departments that it can be exhausting

      1300 is WAY too many people to be working on a messaging app

      WhatsApp had about 1 percent of that and was worth $19B. What’s Slack’s valuation now?

      When Google was pretty much just a text box and a result web page, was it justified that it had 1300 people?

      How many people work on Facebook Messenger? I’d wager it’s equal to, or more than 1300

      Slack is an enterprise product so you need sales and customer service.

    Slack is being out run by Microsoft Teams in adoption rate. My customers have seen through the freemimum model and many bolt- on's.

      Thanks for the gender assumption.

      Remember folks, if there’s value in your product, you don’t give it up for FREE...cough..MSFT Teams...cough cough.

      You mean like 75% of the people using Slack are doing? Your whole model is based on fremium you idiot. Teams is value add innovation to a paying customer. Last i heard you all had less than 2k paying customers. We have 200k Teams customers with millions of user's.

      And where is your pricing page for Teams? Oh wait, forgot it’s a free add on cause your ceo doesn’t value your own product. Ouch

      Show me the page where people can download Teams for free and use it without Office 365. Mic drop.

      Seems like people can’t authenticate Blind via corporate slack email hence why you don’t see anyone posting that much about slack. I had to use the Linkedin authentication process.

    Everything I’ve read about slack, this thread included, makes me think they are the epitome of a politically minded SV company.

      Interesting that you didn’t. I found mine in spam.

    Slack’s Middle Management is completely clueless, brought in probably because of being buddies with the folks at the top

      If I work on it for few months and fix it, would Slack pay me $1M?

      They should pay you way more. That’s like their core problem now.

      But I suspect it’s not an easy one to solve.

    OP, it’s just too toxic on here for your malleable little minds. Can’t you see they are only trying to protect you?

    Check your junk/spam folder. That’s where some of my colleagues and I found our blind emails.

    Why can't blind send the email from other domains?

    It may be due to the mailing system used by blind? Because I know there is another company who cannot register in blind and they have very soft/non-existent policy using social network. And there may be more, we don’t know because there are not on here.
