Both surprising and not surprising at the same time.

Nothing new, been there forever, now just more in your face. So easy to block it is laughable. PM me and I will tell you how, so ridiculously easy it will make you cry.

Yes, they have slated an option where you can "turn off" the "recommendations" they call it, but that doesn't actually remove the ADS, they just won't be shown EVERYWHERE and go back to being in select areas only, like inside the APPS themselves, but that has been there since day one and how I neutered it hasn't change, thankfully and will cripple the new ones too :)
