Well, I've thought about this a lot, and I guess it does make a lot of 
sense. I was worried that people were talking about graphic adverts from 
corporate advertisers/sponsors.

As long as there are a known set of rules in place for the kind of ads 
accepted, and that in no way is evolt seen to be *endorsing* advertisers or 
their products, then, as you say Isaac, text ads could be kinda classy.

Still, would be neat to give preferential treatment to evolters, not just 
anyone willing to pay.
