Slack also handles multimedia. Even things like formatted code snippets are way up there, in comparison to IRC.

The only way to mitigate this behavior in the future is to line up the executives and apply a sledgehammer to each head until it is unrecognizable.

There is no justice and there is nothing to deter other companies from engaging in the exact same behavior.
