    If it is true Machine Learning Ads, will there no longer be Microsoft ads on site devoted to Open Source?

      We'll see, curious how it's going to work out and what it comes up with.

        Unfortunately it breaks page layout. The "About author" section is an example. The commercial is between the header and the actual description.

            Phoronix.com was offline with CloudFlare complaining that it was non-responsive earlier today. I'm guessing that enabling this feature was the cause.

              Hmm. Weird.

              I'm getting an ad suggesting that I should support all attempts made to replace people with AI in high up government positions.

                Hmm strange. No, should be unrelated and wasn't aware of any downtime. This Auto Ads is just a few lines of JS.

                  I never click on ads, I mean if they offered 3d printer filaments and other related stuff I'd be interested, but their trying to sell me a car, insurance or something all the time! or lately the military recruitment nonsense.

                  ALSO be aware there are many JAVA script malicious ads coming out of the woodworks now that inject mining code etc... very nasty.

                    You don't have to click on any ads, you just have to let the ads load so Micheal can get credit for it.
