Thats a good question for down the road. Preferably if we went to the
text-only ads (as mentioned in bug #93588 [1]), it wouldn't be as much
of a problem. I'd say the ads last as long as the service stands and as
long as we don't have any issues with the sponsor. Also, we don't have
to take every single hardware offer we get if we don't need it.

Well, orginally just mixing the order for all ads. But if we get to the
point where we have a lot of ads, we could go the route of only show X
number of ads in a rotation.

To me this would put the donation in more of a contributor rank and
file. Any information about the company would only show on the sponsor
page (plus a GWN article most likely thanking for their contribution).

For example, the IBM donation that corey mentioned about. It's best to
put the acknowledgement for that on the sponsors page.
