And agora+phorie it's for the people who gets excited to be in public :)
The word "agora" alone doesn't have any negative meaning.

I still remember that in Romania "Agora" was a publishing house that held the
"PC Report" magazine.
But on the other side, "agora" is a commodity word (used by everybody in
Greece), so it's a little bit difficult to trade mark it :)
Off-topic: every time we speak about Greek words I cannot stop thinking to the
"My Big Greek Fat Wedding" movie, where Tula's father could demonstrate to
everybody that any word in the world is ... Greek :))
