The BBC has put a decision on the backburner for whether or not to put additional ads on its site. Critics say that international visitors should be forced to see extra adverts because they don't contribute to the licensing fees that keep the news organization running.

Meanwhile, others argue that doing so would hurt the site's impartiality and possibly alienate it from other countries like the US, which count for a significant amount of traffic.The "governing Trust will not be making a decision on funding the international part of the BBC website with adverts until later in the spring," said the BBC in a statement.
