Google back in 2005:

There will be no banner ads on the Google homepage or web search results pages.

Google today:

The company confirmed to the Guardian that it is testing a system with about 30 advertisers in the US in which it shows banner ads for companies including SouthWest Airlines on pages which include them in web search results.

And people wonder why I have zero trust in companies.

For fuck's sake... would you guys PLEASE shut up about adblock? Sharing information is great and all, but there are some things we need to keep as 'hush hush' as possible, and this is one of them ;)
