I tend to side with you, although I don't mind a little advertising if it's 
for a specialty item, or one particularly hard to get that closely pertains 
to the topic of the message base.  As an example, I do appreciate knowing 
someone who has true SAE's for sale, or someone who will ship you Yamato Ebi 
at a reasonable price.  However, I agree with you that generic advertising, 
i.e., "all brands of filters now 10% off...." is crossing the line into 
commercial advertising, and I think it's inappropriate.
