Optimization: Using machine learning, Auto ads show ads only when they are likely to perform well and provide a good user experience. Revenue opportunities: Auto ads will identify any available ad space and place new ads there, potentially increasing your revenue. Easy to use: With Auto ads you only need to place the ad code on your pages once. When you’re ready to use new features and ad formats, simply turn them on and off with the flick of a switch -- there’s no need to change the code again.
I have a question. To use auto ads, do we remove all of our old ads completely? Also, if our ads were in div tags, do we remove those also?

I had to stop Auto Ads just now - counted no fewer than TEN adblocks on a page (some were stacked) that I usually kept no more than three on. That's a huge difference and quite the eye sore. I care enough about my visitors to not want that many ads on a page and I wouldn't stay on a site with that many ads-per-article for one second. It's like a blind hacker got a hold of my code and went crazy with it.

One more example of increased lack of control.
Just throw everything up in the air, WTH?

You are mistaking thinking for hating. A little extreme.
If you don't want to use it, don't use it. Not sure what the point of hating it is. They're not forcing you into anything.
I gave it a shot on two separate attempts network-wide but it places WAY too many ads on a page...
do you see more ads in long content?
@Azlinda do you see more ads in long content?
If you have AMP pages
