I have to second this question; I'm not opposed to google ads in
principle, but it seems like just making some income 'because we can'
doesn't make much sense. If there are long term and reasonably
repetitive needs someone foresees (hardware?) then ads probably make
sense, but if there are small, targeted, one-time costs, I'm sure some
of us who are heavy users might cough up a bit.
