Absolutely. I'd much prefer a Consumer Reports-type approach where FT wouldn't accept advertisting or promotion of commercial ventures. Aside from the advertising, which seems to be a necessary evil, I think the moderators do a good job of eliminating commercialization in the threads. The advertising seems to be necessary to "pay the bills", unless there's a strong willingness from members to pay for content, but I don't advocate that. I want to keep FT as open to the public as prudent.
