Just So You Know...

Those involved in the sexually explicit bombing of my recent Zoom meeting were definitely adults, not teens or younger adults and they had obtained the password from a public page on social media. This was not a kid prank but attention-seeking adults. Apparently, as more of us interact on Zoom, this and other bombings occur with greater frequency. The meeting host has the option of locking the meeting so late arrivals and potential bombers are excluded.

I spent time today researching the primary candidates for judge and school board in my area, got some bills paid, fed himself and put away laundry. While the weather is clear, it looks like a potential weather event is shaping up. I'm hoping it will dissipate or veer away, but only the coming days will tell,

Cheers...

I had assumed that the zoom bombers were adults. And wonder about what the rest of their lives look like.
Stay well, stay safe.
And fingers crossed on the weather event front.

Our library system has banned zoom for that reason. They use Go-to Meeting. My centering prayer group uses Zoom but with a waiting room so the moderator can admit only genuine participants. It's very jarring to have disruption in a place trying to have calm.

Last minute passwords can solve this. So far any meetings I have attended are not bombed and the moderators have to admit participants one by ones and check authenticity. It's a horrible shock for this to happen. So sorry it happened to you.

Stay well and safe.

I hope the weather stays clear so at least there is one less thing to deal with.

The schools here are not allowed to use Zoom. I'm surprised the folks who manage it haven't come up with a way to safeguard the meetings.

Oh, yet another downer about Zoom. I do hate that system.
