Zoom Bombing

For those not familiar with the term, 'Zoom Bombing' is when a Zoom meeting (or other online meeting) is attended by a person or persons who wish to disrupt the meeting in a juvenile and generally offensive way. Sadly this is their idea of 'fun'. We have had two recent instances. Cullumpton Wednesday and Exeter Wednesday Step11 Meditation had intrusive and abusive guests with dodgy names like ' John F Kenneday and Tommy McGay '. Besides the contrived names they may well have no video enabled. So look out for these signatures
