Recently, I shifted away from using Slack to a self-hosted version of Matrix paired with Riot. More on the reason for doing that and how it was done later, but as part of this migration was purging entire history of all channels in the Workspace on Slack. I was hoping that Slack had some sort of functionality to bulk delete and/or wipe out entire history in a channel. Instead, it turned out the only way of doing so was the delete each message individually, one by one.
