Spot the bug - Outlook "block sender" icon, solution

Last week I posed the question, what's wrong with this Outlook icon?

The answer is simple - the slash in the "no" icon goes the wrong way.

My personal keystone for this is a street sign in a certain panel of The Calculus Affair, but the direction of the slash is part of ISO-3864: top-left to bottom-right.

Perhaps a better mnemonic is to think of the word "NO":

The Outlook team isn't the only one to get this wrong, though:
