It is probably - not necessarily - about their opt-out policy
that allows by default to pass through some not intrusive
and non aggressive advertisement, tested by some criteria.
Users are adviced to report ads that violate these criteria.
This way the ADP author decided to help with money
for project websites that rely on ad income
to cover expenses or effort.
As this pisses up some people,
there are ABP variants that removed this opt-out feature.
All that does not exclude the bribe possibility,
but both cases can easily be confused.
Wise man guards the words he says,
as they may say about him more,
than he says about the subject.
