Wikipedia is published under the GNU FDL license, and there are lots of
wikipedia copies around that have ads. The users seem to prefer the
original one that does not have ads. If the original started to have ads,
I am sure there would immediately be an alternative without ads, and a
stampede of users and contributors to that alternative.
That is a good thing. Fences, windows and tollbooths are against the
spirit of free software and information. You do not seem to understand
this, which is sad.
