Slack banned Blind

Jun 14, 2018 51 Comments

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

      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.

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

    First thread I’ve seen about Slack since I got Blind. Where are all these posts?

      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.

    I just signed up to test this... Code was in my spam folder. OP is just mistaken.

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

    I think you should check your spam folder before you spread rumors.

      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
