It would seem to me the issue is not being avoided at all (witness the
long thread I'm still reading), it is just that not all people in this
list - which you asked for feedback - agree with your view of the world
and what linuxaudio.org should/could/must be.
Linuxaudio.org currently has (AFAIK) complete control of its brand,
content and message. It is being kindly hosted by vt.edu and run by
volunteers. But of course I don't know the details. Advertising, if
anything, will dilute the control of the brand content and message - the
way I see it of course, you will disagree. As everything else in the
world, who puts the money eventually controls the message, not the other
If advertising is accepted I presume linuxaudio.org will have to be
hosted somewhere else (out of the .edu domain). Then advertising becomes
a requirement for the survival of linuxaudio.org. No advertising, no
hosting money. The more linuxaudio.org depends on advertising to run,
the more it will be subject to control of its message.
