What fuels advertising isn't the remaining (or not) disposable income.
It's just that A want's you to buy their product, rather than B's.
Therefor A and B both increase advertising to retain and/or gain
market share.

As such, it will be a constant source of revenue forever.  If you have
a MUD with human traffic, you have a saleable commodity.
