Personally, I much prefer the ads in the back, all together.  I actually 
read them, as I'm sure do many others. Sure, many of them are 
repetitive, but sometimes something new shows up. It's my favorite 
example of non-coercive advertising. Scattering them among the articles 
is like TV commercials you're forced to watch. Imagine if TV advertising 
worked like QST: From 7 to 7:30 are all the ham radio ads on channel xx. 
>From 7:30 to 8:00 are the refrigerator ads. If you're looking for a 
refrigerator, you can watch them without being forced to watch all the 
laxative ads.
