No strong feelings about it; just thought that it had been discussed...
uhm... three years ago?  But if you decided otherwise in the meantime.

I just fear, that some might be confused when reading about 100 events,

Maybe PEBKAC when handling the automatic spell check extension, which

Don't know ;)

Just heard you have keynotes, and thought that they should be by
definition of interesting?
