1 There is a problem with excessive use being made of internal advertising to Wikimedia editors and readers.
2 There is a lesser problem of some people being unaware of internal advertising due to ad block in Firefox and because they mentally blank them out.
Some things need to be communicated.
The people who want to communicate something aren't necessarily neutral about its importance.
Discussion about what is communicated and how it needs to be communicated needs to be on Meta if global and otherwise on the project concerned.
