Mixing ads with real notifications that need your attention is the darkest of dark patterns
@sir any examples or screenshots to illustrate this?

And _incredibly_ common, at least if you include "product announcement"/ads for internal products that are mixed in with email notifications
@sir You don't need notifications from services which do that, nothing from them really needs your attention.
@sir iOS needs an “allow notifications for 1 hour after using” setting for apps, sort of like the “allow location while using” setting. So you could get messaging/delivery notifications for apps you’ve recently used without normally getting their annoying spam notifications they send out whenever

Yikes! At least the ads are optional.
That's usually a relationship ender for me and a service.
