I have a *vague* recollection that it *has* been asked before and that 
there was a consensus, or a pronouncement from R core (or a combination 
of the two; or something like that) that such announcements were OK as 
long as they were reasonably brief and not overly frequent.  Or 
something like that.

It seems to me that the Highland Statistics ads fall within these 
vaguely remembered guidelines.
