"Slack for Gamers" sure looks like Slack...(discordapp.com)

    Sort of. It started off as Glitch, an in-browser Flash-based massive multiplayer. They couldn't make a business out of it and so open-sourced the whole thing, including the gigabytes of custom illustrations, which are gorgeous. Then the team went on to turn the chat software they used internally to make Slack which, much like this gaming chat outfit, many will go on to shamelessly rip off.

      I'm not sure why you're so upset about Discord, nor what we 'ripped off.'
