#4502: Slack username seems no longer unique

Component:  Profiles     |   Keywords:
 Starting from a profile like https://profiles.wordpress.org/imatoni/ it
 indicates that the user is '@Phil on Slack'. But on Slack there are
 currently 4 different @Phil.

 Starting a DM with each of them will indicate 'This is the very beginning
 of your direct message history with @Phil'

 I suppose this is due to Slack now using 'member IDs' like UCGDDDSBA or

 1) add the member ID next to the slack alias.
 2) add the direct DM link (https://wordpress.slack.com/messages/UCGDDDSBA/
 or https://wordpress.slack.com/messages/U5C0WNDJM)
