I see that the London OpenGuide now has Ads by

kake suggested on irc that a preferences option "show me ads" that's off
by default would be a decent compromise solution. ( This would need coding
and not by kake btw)
However while it may be acompromise i dont actaully think its good idea.
Who in their right mind would turn on ads. You may as well just have them
off completely full stop.
There are many other ways to generate money. And if we want money to cover
things this shoud be stated specifically. In this vein i think t0shirts
would be great but hey.
What has annoyed me most about this is that the list was not asked before
it was implemented. Changes in look and feel i dont mind not
being consulted about. However the addition of ads is something that the
"community of contributors" should have been consulted on. As Roger has
suggested he is no longer willign to contribute stuff if their are ads.
If we as a group had decided on ads so be it. Democracy does crazy things
