Also, ad-heavy sites takes forever to load because the infrastructure supplying the ads sucks. On top of that the ad-agencies are using quite invasive tracking coupled with all the social network connectors that now are more or less standard on every site.

I'm not sure you and I are reading the same constitution in regards to corporations. Last I checked, the closest the constitution says about the subject is giving congress the authority to regulate interstate commerce. How this affects the power to issue interstate/intrastate corporate charters is in no way "clear" as you claim.

So if for example Boeing crashed an experimental prototype business jet, NTSB wouldn't need to be involved since Boeing is a for profit company and only rich people and companies would eventually buy the plane? Is that what you are saying?

Since FAA issued a license for the plane in question NTSB has to investigate the accident, and if the NTSB finds that the plane is unsafe they can recommend the FAA to rescind the license. Thats why NTSB is involved, it has nothing to do with "rich peoples hobbies".
