Zoom Escaper

@floppy Another option - set your name to "Connecting..." and say that you have network problems :P

well @theyounggreenbaron i was commenting on that it depends on google chrome and vb-cable (which in turn only support microsoft windows and apple macos), both of which are proprietary software; but fwiw the web app itself is also released under a non-free license

Alternatively just use the linux zoom client. :D

@floppy alternatively, unplug the headphones, turn up your mic volume & leave this running

@floppy Am I the only one who finds pretending you have issues when you actually have none deeply unethical?

@lukas I hear you. I'm surprised how many people reboost this.

Whether for the laughs or serious use, people seem to be able to relate to it.
