Even if some advertisements were placed, they will probably be removed 
by the linux distributions.
I do find the spell check idea, where you can see where the suggestions 
came from, is an interesting idea.
This will also make Pidgin less dependent on spell checking libraries. 
It's like the Google search bar in Firefox. But it should never be 
something like a search bar or just a plain ad, because it has nothing 
to do with Pidgin.
