An oblique reminder.

Hey everyone, this is a forward slash: /
This is a backslash: \
Trust me, when you’re reading a website URL in ad copy, you do not mean backslash. The backslash is not commonly used in anything other than local file paths on CP/M, DOS, and Windows computers. NOT www.somebusiness.com/specialradiooffer. Trust me on this. It’s just “slash”. And this is Slash. Clear? Good. Stop saying backslash.

Not particularly oblique. See what I did here?
