That banner ad story is pretty interesting and troubling. Let's hope that's an idea and practice that can be beaten down...

There's a comment in the article that makes it sound like CMA internally is in a bit of disagreement over this. Sadly, the comment is referencing a communication prior to the EULA change.

CMA is either seriously hurting, or some jackass there met these R66T guys at some conference and got sold onto this being a huge revenue stream. I don't see it going well for the company, and I don't see it going well for whomever is pushing this idea internally.

Heck, if they offered a free internet service with ads, some people would jump at it. But injecting ads into a connection you are paying good money for is not going to make for loyal customers.
