As much as I'm against the concept at the moment, +1 - as Rudy said, it's
worth trying at least, and beo probably takes just as much of a hammering
hitswise as eo does.
There's a nice big blank space to the right we can use - it's normally used
for the login/search boxes, links to articles etc on eo, but on beo it's
empty as an empty thing that's been emptied. If you're gonna put a text ad
box anywhere on beo to be not-that-intrusive, it's gotta be there.

I disagree - a "what's this?" link above or below the adbox linking to an
updated section of the "give to evolt" article makes so much sense it hurts.
