Don’t install Zoom

BC School District 34 (Abbotsford) has approved Zoom and wants my son to install it, despite me saying I didn’t want it installed here. If enough of us stand against it, they’ll use something else. Zoom should be disallowed at the provincial level so districts can’t make the decision to use it.

Here’s a partial list of why you don’t want to run Zoom. The problem isn’t so much these vulnerabilities as that they keep coming, and Zoom seems to have a sense of complete apathy towards them. Many of these are bad ideas to the point where it’s hard to imagine a reasonable programmer would do something that way, which leads me to believe there are probably bad fundamental decisions throughout.
