Many of you may already know this, but as of March 15, 2017 NetSecFocus decided to migrate our community to our own Mattermost server. There were a few reasons for this with the main reasons being message retention in Slack.

Due to this and the impossibility of paying about $12k USD/month for Slack we decided to ditch it for something better.
