I agree with this comment. It amazes me to say this, because while the web has generally turned into an ad-infested nightmare of everything-is-clickable minimal-content sites, LWN stands out as almost entirely ad-free.
I could actually tolerate 1-2 more subtle ads per page iff it would help the bottom line. Especially if they were tasteful. Small, text-only adword blocks are good, 468x60 animated gifs are bad.
If LWN ever invites me to punch the monkey, I'm totally reconsidering my slightly pro-ad position.
