Oops - I clicked edit when I meant to click quote - can you repost pls?

As for dynamic querying concerns, there are none. Dynamic querying aims to return the user enough results for the specified query. Since our results are targeted and relevant, those results satisfy the user's query.
This is arguable. Many people would think that any sponsored results should be complementary to whatever other people have shared on the network. Also, since those results come usually from single servers with high capacity, they should not count to the dynamic query limits.

Also, you leave no option for the user to opt-out of receiving sponsored results - something a ggep extention/flag in the query could have achieved.

Unfortunately we're all facing a done deal - and discussing what could have been done is not really productive.
