I have no idea what idiocy is in the article, but I do know that I was on a Zoom call with you and you shared your screen and I saw on your web browser that one of the tabs was open to Lifehacker I'd have to come off mute to laugh at you.

"Cover up your webcam: Apple frowns on this advice, but I don't really care."

I'm with "Lifehacker" on this one. And if a piece of painters tape is enough to put a laptop screen out of tolerance that sounds more an issue on the design side than a user error. Also sounds like bullshiat.

It's really simple.   Don't farkin' masturbate during a Zoom call.   Or any other kind of call.

My laptop is perpetually docked with the lid closed, which disables the built in camera.  And I always unplug all external cameras when I am not actively using them for a conference call.  Even prior to the COVID-19 remote work shenanigans, I had heard way too many stories regarding employees embarrassing themselves with a hot mic.

Step one should always be to disable video.

I'm always in my birthday suit.  I usually am wearing something over it, though.

1) Disable/cover the camera.
2) Act as if the camera and mic are always on.
3) Wear pants of some sort.
4) Leave the room if you feel the need to masturbate.  Try not to be loud about it in case you forget to mute yourself.

Simple.

The secret is to do it immediately before the call starts.

"Oh I have that file, it's in the other room"
"Could you go get it for us?"
"... ... ... No."

Not that I'm paranoid, but I always pull the video and sound hardware out of any laptop I have.  If I want video, I use a USB camera.  If I want audio, I use a USB headset.

Those electrons have never learned how to jump from the computer to a disconnected cable.

Wait... that last one left me with the impression the author spends their free time at home naked, and they seem to think so does everyone else.

I'm really baffled that companies require employees to be on camera. Share your screen? Sure. But having the Brady Bunch on my screen doesn't help me concentrate during a meeing. I really don't get it.

It's a misguided concept of team building combined with a controlling idea of making them dress/hair/makeup as if they were in the office.
