I'm afraid those links are pure ads, they're not links we willingly send you to but are keywords automatically linked to by the ad provider. I know they can be quite annoying and maybe even easily confused with actual links but they pay for a huge portion of this site and we have no alternatives that'll pay as much.
I don't get the ads myself, but there should be a difference between how they look and how our own links look. For one, if there's a popup when you hover over it then its not ours(I also think they're underlined when you don't hover over them while our links just have a different colour than the text). I'd hope that the ad provider at least gives ads that are somewhat relevant to the topic at hand and may be educational but we have no control over that.
Whatever you choose to do, we won't judge you for it. We don't usually advertise it because we profit from it, but blocking ads is your right as an internet user.
(Whatever you do, do NOT try to game the system by automatically clicking a bunch of ads, it will not make us money but result in a ban)
