While Slack's Acceptable Use Policy does not explicitly mention hate speech, the company said in a statement, "The use of slack by hate groups is at odds with everything we believe in Slack and is not welcome on our platform … Use Slack, to promote or incite hatred and violence against groups or individuals, is a contradiction to our values and the very purpose of Slack. "In this case, it is not clear if Slack has removed 28 individual accounts or larger group accounts, but We contacted the company to clarify this.
Of course, Slack is not the only platform that removes hate groups and the group. The company says this is not the first time it has happened. Facebook, YouTube, Reddit and even GoFundMe have banned all white nationalist groups. In these cases, companies have been slow to trade, so it's nice to see Slack respond quickly. According to Talking Points Memo Discord, a platform originally intended for gamers, prohibited members of Identity Evropa from expiring Unicorn Riot . The group said it would use Slack instead, but it looks like Slack is closing it pretty quickly.
