    CAUTION: This only works for primary calendars. For secondaries it delets the whole calendar, not just the entries. This means creating a new one and getting users to re-subscribe.

    Either this no longer works in 2014, or it doesn’t work with Google Apps for Business.

    By not dating your content you don’t stay relevant longer, you make people hate your site, which I do now.
