Disabling MOTDs (including advertisements)

Server admins have the ability to show HTML pages through the Source engine's MOTD (message of the day) system. Some server admins may choose to abuse this feature by displaying loud or obnoxious ads when you first connect to the server.

If you feel that this is an issue, you may disable HTML MOTDs by going to Options > Game Settings > set "HTML MOTDs" to "Disable".
