If the ads offend you there are means to remove them from your sight. If you are using Firefox, install Adblock Plus. In Google Chrome or Chromium, Ad Block or Ad Thwart will do the same thing. There are also ad blockers for Epiphany and most other browsers.

If The Mint forum started removing paid advertisements whenever someone complained about the advertiser, we would rapidly lose all income from advertising.
The Mint forum also sells ad space to Microsoft. We get complaints about that and they are answered in the same way.
