If they don't want to "ruin their integrity" they could only put advertising on the sites they deem unworthy. Those sort of articles are likely to be more in line with advertising anyway. While reading about "Who's the Boss" you could buy it on DVD. It just kind of makes sense. The article on weapons grade uranium could pull up some interesting google ads, though...

lukas84 writes "I've written about privacy concerns with Windows Vista's Shadow Copy feature. This feature allows users of the better Windows Vista editions to restore files from a direct online backup, without having to restore from tape.
