Even if everyone could agree on this it would last for about 1 week and
then go back to status quo. I really don't mind the ads. They are not
excessive, they are reaching a good market where there is a win-win (the
seller gets some money and space back and the buyer gets first crack at
cool stuff), and they are more on topic than the drivel that has been
plaguing us for the last four weeks or so.
