Many of your posts are clearly paid ads. So why must I be bombarded with another ad when I open one of these 'stories'?

so why open them if they are clearly paid ads? I tend to agree with you articles have affiliation links in them but this site gotta pay for itself somehow or are you willing to pay a monthly fee to access it?

This is the reality of any tech site. Look at CNet, ZDNet, Computerworld, etc. -- they all have articles that are pretty clearly promotional, some of them clearly marked, but others written by staff that are probably fluff pieces. These sites are all free. If you don't want these ads, then would you be willing to pay a subscription fee? I didn't think so.

If you actually are interested in paying for great ad-free Android news/discussion, I highly recommend JR Raphael's Android Intelligence Platinum. He's one of the best tech journalists around, completely independent, and skilled at cutting through the BS.
