Just a week after it was introduced (and confused the heck out of the Washington Post‘s writers), the threesomes app-cum-workplace romance app Feeld has been removed from Slack’s app directory.

According to The Atlantic, Feeld founder Dimo Trifonov said the app was removed because it violated policy rules against apps that are “inappropriate for use in the workplace or that negatively impact the user experience on Slack.”

Sure, an app specifically geared towards awkwardly revealing workplace crushes via bot might be inappropriate for use in the workplace, but removing it does take a little spice out of the Slack directory.

It’s still available for Slack, but you have to get it the hard way or not at all: by downloading it from the Feeld website directly and manually installing it.
