I think number of students depends a lot on qualifications of the trainer and success of the current students.
I don't have a problem with people advertising their trainers (I brag about both mine all the time and very happy to share info (and I did via PMs)), but yeah, I haven't seen the one yet to consider using a certain trainer just because she's not in a good financial situation. Not a right "ad" for the trainer frankly, but I'd say rather opposite (Flash, no offense, I do understand you just tried to help).
