Why isn't the meeting host/manager being taken to task over this? Every major web-conferencing platform offers the host the ability to disable the audio and/or video feed of any participant, both pre-emptively and on-the-fly.

Yeah, I would think that instead of saying, "Somebody call Berni!" the meeting host could just disable his video or at the very least, boot him from the meeting.

Maybe shower guy was the meeting host, but this of course raises other questions.

They needed something to be offended about. The Spanish are more litigious than disabled New Yorkers. With a higher per-capita of lawyers.

Hey, Subby; they're all civilians. You mean "members of the public."

As video of the incident made the rounds online, Bustillo took to social media, saying he was at "complete peace" with what had transpired.

He's not confident about himself in front of the camera. To curb his anxiety, he needs the shower.

I don't know. In business oriented ones that's the case, but in socially orientedooriented most people are responsible for their own settings.  And even if it is the business variety, most people have never ventured into all the bells and whistles.

If he's "at complete peace" about it, that means it was intentional, and he enjoyed it.

Or he realized he couldn't do shiat about it now, so what's the point in running around screaming and tearing his hair.  I have some respect for people that basically go with, "Well, I farked up.  Sorry, can't make it unhappen, but it ain't happening again."

No matter how many times I try to explain this to any of my colleagues, every meeting includes "What? Oh, sorry. No, go ahead." with a couple of "you're muted" thrown in for good measure.

Well, I'm reasonably certain everybody there has seen a naked man before at some point, so there isn't too much to get worked up with ver.

As long as he didn't jack off on cam, no big.

I work with software developers who can't seem to handle muting and unmuting correctly.... And that's after they've been told countless times and watched other people do it too.

Maybe 15 years ago, I took an online course for a version of Windows Server.  Before the class started, a pretty basic email was sent out telling people to download a VMWare image and set it up.  Link to the VMWare player, link to the image file, and step-by-step instructions for installing the player and opening the image.

The first TWO DAYS!!!! of the class consisted of the instructor individually walking half the class thru the process of getting the VM running.  Each time he finished walking someone thru it, another one asked if he could show them how to do it.  WTF?!?  What a wasted weekend.  I drank an entire mini keg.

Here is my question. If he was trying to multitask by showering while just listening to the meeting... and yet the sound of the shower was drowning out everyone shouting at him that they could see him showering... Then he couldn't hear the meeting either. So this reeks of b*******.

He added that his experience as a swim instructor had left him comfortable with his body. "I've spent half of my life half-naked and have never been ashamed of nudity, whether my own or that of others,"


I bet he instructs young men in the pool and bath house
