"It was founded by John Wilkes Booth’s brother, which should have been a sign of the ambush that loomed."

Now that's unfair. John Wilkes was the black sheep of the family, whose relatives were appalled by his actions. His brother Edwin, who founded the club, was the most distinguished American actor of his time (JWB was never in his class as an actor) and a most respected figure who once, by bizarre coincidence, saved Abraham Lincoln's son from being run over by a train.

Your links are looking like normal again!

I suspect your FB ad settings page looks different than mine. Not sure which links you are talking about.

On the bottom of mine, going up:
How Facebook ads work
Hide ad topics
Ads that include your social actions [ no one ]
Ads based on your activity on FB Co. Products that you see elsewhere [ allowed ]
Ads based on data from partners [ allowed ]
Your information ... maybe this is what you mean? "Manage whether we can show you ads intended to reach people based on these profile fields."

The Advertisers section has a bunch of companies I'm not familiar with, but the page says "These advertisers are running ads using a contact list they or their partner uploaded that includes info about you. This info was collected by the advertiser or their partner. Typically this information is your email address or phone number"
They probably bought a list of names & numbers for marketing purposes, so it's not surprising.

The "Your Categories" section is interesting. Mine includes "US politics (very liberal)" and "Multicultural Affinity: African American (US)"

Patreon has backed down before in the face of user outrage, so they know they can't afford to piss their users off too much.

First time I'd noticed their main backer is Jared Kushner's brother!

And why doesn't your links-feed have a Patreon button?!

The UK's never going to get anywhere while those in the financial industry feel guilty about taking money from people! ;)
