"No" from me as well. I'd rather see TSVN survive as a completely ad/spam

free product.

As a student, my funds are limited as well, but if it comes to such "spam"

in TSVN, I'll gladly donate whatever my share would be.

Actually, I wouldn't mind an "If you like this product, please consider

donating any amount" notice as the last page of the installation. If I was

asked nicely, like that, I would probably be much more eager to donate.
