Advertising on the list

I think you're right to let relevant ads in.  If we had a budget for it, 
we would consider something like outsourcing for large web projects.

I suspect that what rankles about ads is when they masquerade as 
something else.  Larry Whitacker was extremely polite (as net advertisers 
go) to ask before posting.  But even he didn't think to put "Commercial:" 
or such early on in his message or his subject line.  It would have helped.
