    @risson we used Zulip at work before switching to Rocket.

    Zulip is (was?) really a shitty and bugged chat. It gave us more problems than solutions (to our previous problems 😂)

    Slack made a blog post where they said they won't ban anyone anymore, instead they would block IP ranges for the countries

    Did you lose your chat history? Self hosted is the way to go, if services like slack are this unreliable.

    @electrineer of course it's not (except it messes your workflow). The sanctions have more of a psychological factor, even if some of the have no financial impact, just humiliating would suffice.

    Dont fuck with export control guys. That's there for US government's privacy. Most companies that they work with have to abide by it to prevent exfil of information related to national security, and I wouldn't be surprised if there were some slack groups set up for some military/defense teams.

    I doubt its effectiveness too but the law is still there to try and keep national secrets safe.

    @korengali seriously? 😒
    A fellow dev is a fellow dev. Doensn't matter where she/he is in the world. So help him as a fellow dev rather than scold him for beeing the Boogeyman the politicians want's you to believe he would be.
    Iranians are nice people with a beautiful language.

    Thank you very much.
