I imagine that feed posts can be equiped with custom tags and that
qgis.org can filter feeds by tags. Maybe the authors in question want to
support the noncommercial character of the qgis.org website through
tagging advertisements in their feeds as advertisements. QGIS as a
project would be a good identity to propose a standardized tag for this,
let's say "advertisement". :) I don't know about how many authors we
talk, but maybe someone could ask them all individually and that already
solves the issue.

Best wishes
