Linux Medical News Google Ads

As you can see from the banner above and to the side, Linux Medical News and the Journal of Open Source Medical Computing (JOSMC) now carry Google Ads that are targeted to this websites content. Linux Medical News does not control what ads are displayed. GoogleAds decides what ads are relevant to this site by an algorithm. Clicking through on an ad results in a micropayment to Linux Medical News for carrying the ad. (Dear Reader Hint: clicking through on ads helps Linux Medical News generate revenue to keep the site growing and improving). I have seen a few ads for closed source medical software displayed on this site through GoogleAds. LinuxMedNews readers may find this a contradiction. So what do you think readers? Is carrying ads for closed-source medical software on a free and open source medical software news site a problem? You decide.
