I am getting more and more annoyed with React (and with our poor tech choices) by the minute.

Who in their right mind would do something so hideous?

An ad that does it poorly. Like an amateurishly written blog post, it starts with platitudes. "Video calling," it says, "is core to daily life. It's how we work, how our kids learn, how we connect with the family and the family doctor."

We bloody know all that! Why are you telling us what we already know?

The bland stock-quality imagery is unappealing as well.
