Default Netsol adverts - why?

Network Solution just started the evil practice of front-running (pre-buying when you search for a new domain, so you can't purchase from another vendor, they buy it when you do the search) slashdot article, why are they still being allowed to advertise here? That's a sleazy thing for them to be doing.

Our ad space is sold by an agency, so we don't have much influence on it. I know it would be better to sell it ourselves, but we simply do not have the time for this... HowtoForge is already a full-time job for us.

But you've bought a subscription. Why do you see ads on the site?

It's a principle thing, sad to see them contaminating the site advertising
