While I agree this shouldn't be seen as some sort of conspiracy, there are a few things I want to comment on:

1) This shouldn't happen in the first place. ubuntu.com is not ad supported, and neither should the OS. Canonical makes its money through support services and should not need the ad revenue. If for some reason they do, a formal statement needs to be released

2) This is kind of sneaky to put in to the motd

3) Regardless of where it's coming from, ubuntu.com is the domain. That's where the onus lay.
