 I love the ads, anytime. I don't care how classic equipment is offered
 up just as long as it is being made available. I don't have any
 problem with commercialism either.

 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.
