I do want to see adverts. But I want to see them the way I envision them to be displayed.
I want to be able to subscribe to advert types instead of letting the ad middleman make a guesswork based on which websites I access. I want text-based ads, located in a specific area, which I can glance at and scan quickly. I want to switch ad types quickly in that ad box if I need to.
So yes, I am curios about what's new in a certain area (e.g. games) and I don't mind well-placed, well-behaving, relevant ads. I don't mind them at all.
Sadly this is not how advertising works today.

with 50% of the staff fired now, they have removed the bottom 50% of performers.

My sarcasm meter went off the scale here but in the off-chance that you might have been serious...
That's quite the assumption there. Sorting employees by performance is never an easy task. It's actually really complicated.
A brilliant team with a shitty manager will look worse than a mediocre team with a half-competent manager. A group whose Director is friends with the VP will gat a pass ticket versus the group whose Director has clashed with the VP in the past. And so on.
