I agree that this is a problem with "unpaid" advertising.  I don't think 
it's a problem with "paid" ads.  If you link to a paid advertiser and 
include a disclaimer to the effect that, "Advertisements are paid and 
should not be construed as endorsements";then, hey, what's the problem?  
The only problem I see is the financial consideration, and if the 
Virtual Scribe is careful to retain receipts and record them on his tax
