Slack: Zap triggering on threaded replies

Hi everyone! I have set up a zap that posts a threaded reply to any new messages created by a user in a specific public channel reminding them to use our new Slack workflow instead of making new posts.

This works great, except the zap also triggers on any new threaded replies from users in that channel. I want the zap to only trigger when new messages are posted by users in the main channel, and not any threaded replies (since we still want to encourage discussion on posts created by our Slack workflow).

I found a post on here that described the opposite problem (zap not running for threaded replies) but I’m hoping there is a solution for my use case. 

Thanks in advance for your help!
