It seems there will be a lot of ad banners, at least at first. This, according to Norm. I am guessing that it will be like when one looks in here while not logged in. I for one, will wait and see what the actual event looks like, before arming myself and lighting a torch. I believe they know up topside that this will be a big sore point, hence the mention. I figured it would be best to give one and all ample notice.
That's all I have for now.
