I think the thing that made me feel uneasy is that the motd read like an advertisement. And so did parts of the article, specifically saying that we should watch Silicon Valley. I appreciate that it was not meant that way though.

But maybe people are so sick of seeing clickbait advertorial content when they browse the internet that the message brought up some bad reactions. Perhaps people thought that, when the linked article told them that they should watch Silicon Valley, that it was promoting Silicon Valley. Which is a great show on HBO. If you haven't seen it, you should! (This is not a promotion of Silicon Valley.)
