[At-Large] Zoom

Dear Roberto,

this is an ongoing issue due to OFAC restrictions in the US. Short of
using a product from a non-US provider, there is no cure... apart from
the fact that most of the people in the affected countries have mastered
the use of VPN, for the simple reason that in many of these countries,
some services are blocked locally and others services are also blocked
due to OFAC. So I don't know it is a real issue.
BTW the situation in UAE is patchy. I have managed to use ZOOM in many
parts of the country without VPN. When blocked, I just used VPN &
problem solved.
Kindest regards,
