It is generally used with cloud servers. There is nothing nefarious going on - Akamai is used on many networks and is not malicious
As of 2009, secure connections (designed to highlight hidden intermediaries) pose a problem to Akamai, and attempts to connect to a popular website over HTTPS may reveal the Akamai backend. More recently, however, enhanced security offerings such as Kona Site Defender (Web Application Firewall) have become a major selling point, and in 2013 were the leading driver of revenue growth for the company.

This seems current, but this site is creating links to ads using text within web pages. It doesn't discriminate. It links to ads on my personal business site and of course I'm getting no compensation as well as it's misleading to my customers and makes it harder to navigate. I know it's this site because when I block it I don't have the issue.

In theory it should have been safe but then why would it attempt to drop all those LSOs and run trackers?
The truth is most sites are going to run just fine without it. It is a good candidate to block.
If a site can't run without it you probably want to kick that site to the curb. Some prices are too high to pay.

According to Wikipedia Akamai is a server farm that is hosting many internet services that have moved their websites or other services into the clouds as they call it.

Dodgy tracker used by Akamai. I do not trust them. I block all 21 of these trackers on Facebook and FB still works fine.
