Slack can be subpoenaed, mmkay?


I think not a surprise to anyone here, but a readable reminder for your colleagues.

"There’s the one kind of trouble being overheard at a bar, and then there’s persistent logging of everything we say on remote servers. This isn’t an esoteric, theoretical threat. This is how Gawker died, after their Campfire chats were subpoenaed and entered into court records."


I don't know how more companies don't see this as a problem, esp as there are good self hosted alternatives now
