Indeed. Abstract can be polished to hell and back to bring it to a certain "quality". But
if I'm attending a talk, I'd rather look up the presenter. If it's a young/new gun, and
topic piques my interest, I might go anyway :)

But these are personal preferences and classic bike-shedding topics. So, I'll stop my
monologue here :)
