This is a formal request in case this section is more noticeable for people in a position to do something about it.
When a user decides to opt out of all of the "features" that are bundled with the browser regarding shopping and ads (i.e. Continue shopping and Continue on Booking.com on the new tab, speed dial "suggestions", promotional notifications, promoted speed dials and bookmarks, etc.), it should be abundantly clear that what they want is a clean experience.
They're not interested in any of that, at least I know I'm not, and yet we were shown a 11/11 ad section on new tab and now a Black Friday ad section as well. What is the rationale behind that? Because it's not a fluke.
I take it you earn money or something thanks to it, and I may speak only for myself, but I'm sure as hell not interested in any of those things, to the point that I consider it to be spam, pure and simple.
The funny thing is that you had the balls to bundle an ad blocker with the browser, but it doesn't apply to the browser itself huh? I mean come on guys/gals! Keep the crap out of it FFS, realize you're not the only browser out there, the good things about Opera may not be enough to keep people using it if behavior like this keeps up.
PS. Same could apply to the notifications to use certain features like the screenshot function, Flow, workspaces, messaging in the sidebar, Opera GX, etc. Stop bugging users with those things, you already explain them on first use.
