    Anyone else bothered by real estate ads taking the place of news articles here?

    Well, until you mentioned it, I didn’t get that it was an ad. I just didn’t read the article. I understand JP News need sponsors but I didn’t sign up for full length infomercials coming into my mailbox as if it was news. I wonder of they are testing the field so if no one, or only a few say anything, then they will continue to have them. It’s like the practice of adding a set percentage to a restaurant bill to pay the back of the house. Most people don’t even notice it. 😉
