Mansour should just do like I saw Zahi do once when they first started up the lectures here in Cairo. Wave a water bottle about and threaten to throw it at anyone who doesn't shut off their phones.

I guess as we are now "democractic" it might not be seen as appropriate ;)

Democracy does not mean disrespecting and disturbing other attendees of the lecture as well as the speaker. Phones should be off or on vibration or silent. To take a call, someone should step outside. And people should not be snapping photos of the slides. That is the ultimate rudeness, not only is it disrespectful of the speaker who may not want those slides copied, but also the clicking sounds and the lights from the camera can be terribly distracting to audience members who came there to actually hear the lecture, rather than record it. These ground rules should be laid forth at the beginning of each lecture and if there are people who ignore them they should be given one warning and the next time banned from the lectures. One actually shouldn't have to be told to do these things as they are common courtesy, but some people lack it so it does need to be said to ensure the enjoyment of the majority.
