    The "Law of No Evidence"

    "Law of No Evidence: Any claim that there is 'no evidence' of something is evidence of bullshit"

    That seems to be pushing it a bit in my view. If I am suddenly convinced that the disappearance of my sunglasses means that my house has been broken into, but find no broken window, no scratch marks on my front/back door keyhole and no muddy footprints anywhere, then there is no evidence that my house was broken into.

    So it's just me forgetting where I put the bloody things.

      Are you 100% certain that you had sole possession of your house keys for the duration? Because, don't forget, some of your sunglasses have a lot of our personal details etched onto them for some reason.

    I see it ironic that a company that was created to make it easier for businesses to communicate is having problems with... communication.

    Salesforce also own Slack btw

    Salesforce acquired Slack last year..

    A communications "Train Wreck"? I could only imagine how much worse this could have been if Slack were compromised instead of (or as well as) Heroku.

    THAT would have been a communications train wreck, not just for salesforce, but for their entire customer base who rely on Slack for their internal communications.

    I know what you mean, but if they use Slack their comms are hardly "internal".
