Why is repl now adding a whole bunch of upgrade ads to the UI? To be honest, I don't really mind a broken switch or an upgrade button that never used to be there, but I don't want repl.it to ultimately become paid-for.
Many people came to repl.it for the free service, not the paid one. Why is repl doing this? Just out of curiosity.

please excuse my terrible drawing with my mouse

they need the $$$ to make improvements and also, it probably costs a very large amount of money to keep their computers running all day evaluating people's code
