Slack closed my account today!
I’m a PhD student in Canada with no teammates from Iran!
Is Slack shutting down accounts of those ethnically associated with Iran?!
And what’s their source of info on my ethnicity?
Slack is a US company and as such, they have to comply with regulations or shutter the service. It sucks but that’s our government right now.
I’m in Canada
No ties to Iran
No teammates in Iran!
If using slack is against US sanctions, the same applies to google, twitter, facebook...
Basically, we should ethnically profile people and stop giving services to certain ethnicities.
Tomorrow, Iranians can’t ride the bus.
