Some good news for you, in the options page for RSS Live Links you can disable ads. At least for me, the text is gone after disabling ads in the options page.

It was Awesome New Tab Page for me too. If you go into Configure > General > Advertisements (or just go to options from the Chrome extensions page) you'll be able to turn both advertising options off. That seems to have solved the problem for me.

Mine was Adblock. I only have 4 other extensions besides Adblock and disabled them all, with the exception of Adblock and still got the message. When I disable all of them, including Adblock, the message goes away. I then enable each one, doing Adblock last, and didn't get the message again until I enabled Adblock.
