Default Sponsored posts? In Urgent Rescue too?

Before I logged in I popped over to the Urgent Rescue subforum.

Maytag had an ad there 'Handsome Helpful Hero for your Home" as a sponsored 'post'. I get that this site is commercial and seeks to drive revenue but 'sponsored posts', especially in the Urgent Rescue sub forum? Seems to be going overboard IMO.
It may turn off people who have googled their way here looking to adopt a dog in a shelter as the 'sponsored post' appeared near the top.

Here’s a Handsome Helpful Hero for Your Household

Sometimes too much advertising diminishes ROI.
