wait, why the zoom backlash again?
didn't we literally, just a month ago, find out that they were malware, and they got kicked out of the app store, but nobody cared, and yall started joining in record numbers despite the evil behaviors?

i have to admit that one thing that surprised me about the pandemic is how little regard medical professionals have for data.
not just that they forgot to order tests during the two-month run-up, but that they don't manage the data they *do* have: people tested, confirmed cases... even the number of deaths.

and then after they do the bad shit anyway, everyone looks around in deep surprise at the result, for some reason
