it's a human nature to be jealous of other's progress. a visitor automatically gets tensed when he/she realizes that his/her visiting the page and clicking around can make the webmaster money. they tend to think "this guy is making money by getting us to view his page, why should we give him money?" that's how "ads are evil" theory mite have started. and prolly this lady you're talking about doesn't want her visitors to have that bad impression of hers.
