The advertising pays for the webpage, the upkeep, the hardware and software to keep it running, the stuff that allows the page to stay open, and more. LIke the office building they use, the cleaning crew that cleans the office, and so on. Therefore, they're not likely to take an extra chunk of money and give it away, since there's a lot of finances needed to keep this site running. Plus, why should they give things away to loyal CM'ers? Isn't the site in itself enough, or do you need free crap as well? Be happy with what you have.
