Is it even allowed for a non-profit to run ads for profit? I admit
that a small part of me is curious what ads would come up, but
another, larger part of me says that this is just a bad idea. At the
very least, we should run it by the lawyers before taking any such
action, and even if they say it's ok (and won't jeopardize SPI's
non-profit status), I would still be very reluctant to take such a
step. It seems like a bad precedent.
