***   First, be aware that it's "ads". "Adds" pertains to addition, 
not advertising.

    What the beef is, is that Weaklink is subbing their ads for 
Google's (and presumably ones on other search sites) - for which 
Weaklink gets *paid*.

    Think of buying ad space from Google that is to be directed at the 
local population and then finding that it never gets seen by Weaklink 
customers because Weaklink is bypassing it.

***   No. Hate the players that pull this crap.
