    to slowly filter by their desks.

    Does "to slowly filter by their desks. mean " filter by using desks" or "filter to arrive at desks"?
    6. Companies in the e-commerce business need to deal with a new kind of customer complaint. the complaint made via e-mail or various social media, or by bloggers criticizing companies 'on their websites.
    No longer can organizations sit back and wait for complaints to slowly filter by their desks.

    I feel it means something close to your second suggestion.
    The point seems to be this.
    Complaints used to go through a familiar process that would end up with those complaints arriving at the appropriate company desk.
    Nowadays, complaints appear in various places on the internet and the company has to be more active in finding them and responding.
