8. OMG

I have been on hundreds of similar conference calls where you hear all sorts of stuff coming across the call - dogs barking, people laughing and talking to others in the room or out in the hall, cars honking, vacuum cleaners going on in the background, sirens from outside the facility blaring, doors slamming - and people yelling "Mute your PHONE!!!! WOULD YOU MUTE YOUR PHONE!!!!11!!!!"!!!! And THEN the echo chamber suddenly happens when a feedback loop gets triggered, where you hear someone say "HELLO HELLo HELlo HEllo Hello hello" and then loud static and then someone with the conference leader role finally kills the call to put it out of its misery and start over....

But yes, those types of high-level conference bridges have a feature that should have some key combo that like " *5 " or whatever, to automatically mute all those who call in, whether via a land line, cell phone, or through VOIP.
