For in-game ads? It depends. If they're unobtrusive and fit with the game (something that rarely happens), then they're fine. Think like that mod that replaces some of the brands with their real-world counterparts in GTA:SA. Ads that actually seem to fit and aren't particularly distracting, those I'm fine with. Any other kind is horrible and shouldn't be allowed.

360 already has a lot of ads before you can even load your game, though. That's also silly, especially since they charge for their multiplayer to begin with. It's why I won't ever buy a 360 or any games for it new; I'm not paying a cent to Microsoft for a product like that.

You should probably provide a link in your main post. Also, the poll's a bit redundant, we're probably going to tell you what we think as a response, anyway.
Doctors Without Borders: one of the few charity groups you can rely on to actually do real good in the world.

"The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all." - H. L. Mencken, unsourced

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"- Isaac Asimov, Column in Newsweek (21 January 1980) [source]
