See list archive between say September and October. Very low volume

We are selling ad space now. Just indirectly and with no consistent
policies. Plus some like GNi get questionable benefit.

But Gentoo having ads is selling out just as much as Google is by making
billions of ads in the first place :) Which Gentoo turns around and uses
for Summer of Code and etc.

I love the double standard, and all the ideals do what exactly for
Gentoo?
