First, I don't consider my email to be a response; I intentionally did
not give a viewpoint or opinion on it. I was querying Charles to ask
if he viewed the addition of the ad as a mistake, based on the issue
he refers to (and its actual outcome).

Second, I could be wrong but I don't believe anyone is asserting theme
authors do not have a right to place ads in themes. Similar to non-GPL
themes, plugins and whatnot, rather I think it's being asked how we in
the community view the practice, and whether we should make the wp.org
resources available to them or not.
