Adverts on Internet Movie Data Base

I've been posting on IMDB's message boards intermittently for about three years. I went to their site today and found they've added adverts to every post, this is in addition to pop up browser advertising, and adverts in the frames of their site. Which begs the question just how much advertising does one web site need?

The information IMDB has in relation to this new addition says:

IMDb has partnered with a number of third-party advertisers to present sponsored links that are relevant to the pages you are reading. When you click on these sponsored links they take you to other third-party web sites where you can get more information.

Interesting since I'm getting an advert for - The Cure for Bad Breath - on a post about Richard Dawkins.
