Possible Duplicates:
I think it’s inappropriate to have a .NET company “occupy” generic tags like “testing” and “unit-testing”
Should tags that represent concepts be sponsorable?

I am seeing "telerik" for Testing . This is right . You should not doing for moeny.

which means that Testing =telerik ?

If you are getting money then You cant do like this ..

This is my thoughts

General Computer concepts .This icon is right one ...

For ex : http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/unit-testing

So You people are planning to close this question with out answering –  joe May 25 '10 at 13:32
    
@joe see the duplicate questions for answers on the issue. While I'm against this particular tag sponsoring, too, I don't see anything wrong in the basic idea of sponsoring tags. Way, way better than having four skyscraper-sized ads on every page. –  Pëkka May 25 '10 at 13:36

If you're so upset at this, have you considered the fact that there are other venues which use different profit models which may be more suited to you? –  waiwai933 May 25 '10 at 13:43

Also bear in mind that SO et al. are free services (at least I didn't pay anything). The bandwidth alone will cost a lot of money. I think we just have to live with advertising on the net (and not only on the net). –  Marcel Korpel May 25 '10 at 13:57

@Marcel: Not that I agree with the OP, but "have to live with it" is not true as well. It also works without advertising: look at Wikipedia! –  fretje May 25 '10 at 15:01
    
@fretje: You're right, but the Wikimedia Foundation relies (almost) solely on donations. Though I can imagine some organizations donate servers and bandwidth to SO (et al.), I don't think these sites can be run on donations alone. Don't understand me wrong, I don't ‘like’ advertisements as well, but those on SO are not that distracting as those banners I saw in the 90's. –  Marcel Korpel May 25 '10 at 20:27

It's called advertising, and it's a fact of life.

I used to really hate it, too, and then stackoverflow came along and in a very direct way demonstrated what an ad supported model might look like vs the alternative (experts-exchange). I realized that putting up with a little mostly-unobtrusive advertising is by far the better option.

@joe SO doesn't remove the sponsorship because the people who work here need to get paid, and this is SO's profit model. –  waiwai933 May 25 '10 at 13:45
    
actually i am passion about testing . When i seen this i got hurt .. thats y i shouting .. Its ok .. if some thing is living with that .. then its ok to kill standards and change anything .. –  joe May 25 '10 at 13:47

Well, if you're that passionate about it, you can purchase the tag yourself! Just comment on this answer and I'll get a quote from the gentlemen at Inedo Media and have you going for say, 6 months?

You should not doing for moeny.

Why not? Thee is nothing unethical or illegal about this, and you fail to explain why this should be changed. Please try to explain you reasoning further so we may better approach your question.

Testing Standard. Its not belong to anyone .. But this is showing like telerik standard ( hidden way ) –  joe May 25 '10 at 13:50
    
@joe - This is not much different than buying keywords on google, and getting keyword based advertising to show up next to search results. Do you disagree with all forms of advertising that are based on generic words? –  Adam Davis May 25 '10 at 14:08
