Anti-social Flipgrid

There should be negative stars, since even one would be an exaggeration. A terrible waste of time, and invitation to habitual frustration. For years, Flipgrid has had problems, losing video responses, announcing that a recording failed to upload... But now, as of 2023, it will not record at all: neither on a state of the art college computer, nor on an older but healthy computer at home, where every other program or app works just fine.
