Controversial ad discontinued in Linux Journal

Author: JT Smith

Linux Journal includes a note about QSol.com pulling artwork from all future issues of Linux Journal. A statement from QSol.com was
released today: "We sincerely apologize to all those who have expressed concern about our advertisement recently featured in Linux Journal
(November 2000). It was certainly not our intention to be offensive and we wish to again express our regret to anyone who was
displeased by the ad." The story doesn't say, but for those who missed it, the ad features the face of a woman with red lipstick, and its headline reads, "Don't feel bad, our servers won't go down on you either."
