I have no idea why ads for cinnamon rolls and other stuff are appearing between the first and second posts on this page. (Well, better cinnamon rolls than Scientology!)
I have neither enabled AdSense nor requested any other form of advertisement on this website. I’ve asked the WordPress people to investigate.
UPDATE: And here’s the answer I received from the WordPress “happiness engineer” (does anybody really use that as their job description?):
To support the service (and keep free features free), we do sometimes run advertisements. We’ve tested a lot of different ad providers and currently use Google AdSense and Skimlinks. We try hard to make the ads discreet and effective and only run them in limited places. If you would like to completely eliminate ads from appearing on your blog, we offer the No-Ads Upgrade: http://support.wordpress.com/no-ads/

Well, that sucks. I haven’t had ads before (except in an ill-advised experiment when I tried running them and they all turned out to be religious), and now they start appearing. And they’ll make me pay to eliminate them. So they make money coming and going, regardless of the money I pay them for the website and upgrades.
Well, block them if you can. I hate them.
