Steve LeHuray jotted down the following:

YES!  Provided it doesn't become the Shudderbug.  Advertising should be
limited in space and content to that which is Leica related.  I wouldn't
want to see 28 pages of B&H ads in the Viewfinder!

Actually, I think the catalog works nicely.  I like having all those
classifieds in one place: I'm not sure that putting them in the back of each
Viewfinder (for example) would be much better.
