It appears wordpress has started to place ads

It was brought to my attention that there are google ads being inserted into the “possibly related posts” section that shows up under the text of new entries. I don’t know when this started, but I think it is a recent phenomenon. As far as I know, there is no way for me to disable this. I didn’t notice it because I use ad-blocking extensions to block this crappy ads. I’m going to look for solutions to get rid of these ads, but because wordpress is a free hosting site, I don’t think I can get rid of them. For now, I suggest doing the following

If you use Firefox, install Ad Block or something similar

If you use Google Chrome (which is my browser of choice), also has Ad Block.
If I come up with something else, I’ll let you know.
