Got this response from LJ support:

I knew I didn't screw it up. They did. I'm glad that they're working on it. :)No thanks! I'd rather not. I'll deal, and hope that they fix it soon. It's annoying, but not too awful.

The ad-supported accounts are an optional thing, y'see. :) I actually think it's pretty sensible.
  1. It's entirely opt-in; the journal owner can choose to have a "sponsored-mode" journal (much like Eudora has a sponsored mode) such that ads appear in their journal, in order to gain account features/benefits similar to those one gets for a paid membership.

  2. If you have a paid/permanent account, and are signed in (e.g. me), you will never see ads in any journal, regardless of whether the journal owner chose sponsored mode or not.

  3. I'm told (this is more fluffy) that the ads are relatively non-obnoxious.
There's a whole lot of information about it all, including tables explaining who'll see ads where/when, at: http://news.livejournal.com/91919.html

Ur, BTW, I don't mean to take the wind out of your fine and amusing snarkiness. :) It's just that I felt like also pointing out that the ad thing wasn't too bad. You can choose not to read the journals of people who do the sponsored thing, or you can pay for your account (IIRC, it's quite cheap -- I don't remember how much it actually costs, since I have teh permanent accountses).
