      Afux, profit doesn't matter if the losses are due to you and your buddies lining your own pockets for a few years.

      It only matters if the party ends and you can't attach yourself to the next VC teet.

      Oh that’s a smart move. However:
      - it won’t block existing users
      - it can be a cat and mouse race, if blind uses a different domain

      If blind were to do email whack-a-mole it would probably open them up to legal liability, right now they aren’t working toward intentionally undermining workplace policy and potentially contracts

      @QVeq24 maybe they reinstated it because of the Business Insider article. They knew about the article before it was released since Business Insider asked them for a comment.

    They forgot to say that the Blind team is really good at deleting confidential information, and your account can be suspended if you do it.

    Smart companies monitor Blind and send takedown notices to Blind if the info is confidential.

    Dumb companies try to ban it, which causes their employees who didn't even know about the app to want to joi.

    Could care less about this. Would rather them investigate the nepotism that runs rampant through all departments. But again, that’s just my two non-shiny pennies I’m rubbing together. Don’t pay attention to me

  • Intuit Indiv. #1
    They used to have a Blind - LinkedIn integration which would get around the need to receive an email at your employers email address from Blind. (I’ve never heard of employers blocking the ability to connect your work email to your LI account).

    The LI integration relied on having your employer’s email address confirmed, so it was equally as legitimate of a signup process, but it provided a bit more obfuscation.

  • LinkedIn boringdude
    You can always verify through Linkedin if you add your work email address.

    So blocking blind emails attempt obviously won’t work.

    If they are this stupid about accessing Blind, how do you trust their products??

    What do you miss out on if you don’t confirm your employer? I haven’t updated my account to show my current employer. If I were to do so are there some restricted-to-employees-of-company-X forums that I’d get access to?

    Blind can fix that easily by sending the verification from random server FQDNs, but with all the free premium publicity, which probably increased in 400% the Blind community, the solution will be delayed for more time
