Those Google Ads are look the way they do. cause they're made for a special
target group. So that's just quit a good marketing idea (not new). If you
want you could say thats also way to make people think Google is different,
they're serious, they're cool and, and and, but they just want to sell, and
harden theire market position. A quit subversive Way of separating people
from there money. And maybe in some cases textbased ads could be
missunderstood as a part of the website.
I think Google wants to put there ads on Debian to get some kind of 'big clean
okay' for there way of doing commercials from another major open source
project. Many people will think: Well, if that's okay for debian.org, it will
be okay for many others, sooner or later. Not only debian.org will be
affected by a decision.
