Oh FFS Ubuntu

It seems like every year or so after some scandal or another dies down the developers at Ubuntu get bored and make another one.

The latest is this amazing new feature that uses motd ("Message of the Day") to show random information to the user. Most striking is what seems to be an advertisement for HBO's Silicon Valley.

Why? Who thought this was going to be a good idea and why do we find ourselves in this boat every other year?
