Allow meeting organizer access to permanently mute all participants for that meeting. The conference would them be a broadcast.
The "problem" now is that everyone can be muted, but they can un-mute themselves. I want the option to not allow them to un-mute themselves.

This makes sense for the person chairing or controlling the meeting to have control of this feature to prevent ringing or feedback in the audio stream.
If the organiser has muted participants, they should be able to unmute all participants at the end of the meeting, when ready for comments
I think it makes sense, if you mute participants, they shouldn't be able to unmute themselves
Ian Purdy commented
Ideally, it would be possible for the organizer to relax this constraint towards the end of a call to allow attendees to unmute themselves for a Q&A element of the agenda.
