Joel on Software, an Ad-Free Site?

Joel Spolsky, writing about the free Ferrari laptop saga:

For a couple of years, I accepted a donation of colocation space and facilities from Peer 1 Network, but only because they were the best colocation facility and backbone provider I could find, and only because Joel on Software is really a non-profit, advertising-free site and I was happy to accept the sponsorship.

Ad-free and non-profit, eh? I count 99 current job listings on, which, at the listed price of $350, amounts to $35,650 in revenue in the last 21 days.
