Comment 2 for bug 1701068

I have to say, I was very disappointed to see this when I logged onto one of my servers today. I can understand the desire to be able to communicate directly to users and present timely, relevant information, but linking out to content marketing in what seems to be one of its first uses is self-sabotage. This type of behavior will lead to it being disabled and the "important security messages" to not be seen.

Note, you can disable this behavior in /etc/default/motd-news
