Hence the concern about turning into the "Chicago Python Meetup".   
They also seem lame about taking down defunct groups (should Ishmael  
disappear as suddenly as he appeared, say).  Do they let you link to  
your own site in notification emails, say?

My unofficial tally is:

1 person suggesting (Brian)
1 person willing to pay (Ishmael)
1 person in favor but really wanting earlier notification
many people opposed, in various degrees of strenuousness and for  
various reasons (everyone else).

Sound about right?
