So today I went to make sure my wishlist on Amazon is updated since most my family uses that as a gift buying guide for me.

And I discovered that Amazon has inserted ads into the middle of my wishlist. Ads for products. Products I don't -want-. Sure, a three hundred dollar pair of headphones would be nice, but if, say, my parents-in-law are going to spend three hundred on my christmas gift, I'd rather have a new dishwasher or a food processor or a bowl-lift stand mixer, not a pair of headphones.

I mean, it doesn't look -that much- like the entries and there's even a little TINY button saying 'ad' but this is ridiculous. Why do you need to make any extra advertising in a wishlist? 90% of the time, anyone looking at a wishlist is intended to buy something off of it, or at least strongly considering it.

Some of the people who use my wishlist already have troubles figuring out how to use it 'right'. Argle bargle.

(ETA: I'm not 100% sure the ads are showing to other people; they're definitely not showing 100% of the time, and in some ways that makes them worse because they're less expected. STILL ANNOYED.)
