No ads have stayed away with pay. Once paid, their explanation "Those were tier 1 ads. They are gone now. These are tier 2 ads."
Paying money for damaged rental code that can be pulled, deleted, broken, and just never finished is not a valid path forward. Paying to a company that keeps it's products from working with other companies products is self-torture. Seeing how little goes to the actual crteators is reason enough. Paying a company for anything when they refuse to hire reasearch, or quality control, and then post "bounties" so they can steal others work for minimal cost to them instead of paying actual employees is not a path forward.
Any and all agreements made at the time of purchase are modified on their whims, even seconds after purchase, where you have "agreed" to let them do whatever they want by way of EULA and other licenses.
I pay creators, not corporate walled-gardens that thrive on the sweat and death of others. I even pay for things I will never use, just to help keep good things going. Apple is not what I consider a "good thing". "Better than some" is below my threshold.
I do not value your definition of work, nor your interpretation of modern day life. And, keep your ads.
