The Ad question is a good one. That is another question that should be asked to Matt Cutts. Unless we were in on the design of Panda, we are all just speculating. Nothing seems to fit the mold perfectly.
Does the Google algorithm look for the word "Advertisement" above or below an ad? That is an important question and there shouldn't be a problem answering it.
I feel like we are a bunch of blind men standing around an elephant. We all "see" it differently.
