Questionable Banner Ads (Before Logging In)

I often come to DVD Talk during breaks at work, and have noticed that before I log in, the site is showing 'local' advertisements (geared toward my zip code). For the past week or so, the banner I've seen is for BLUSH, a local Pittsburgh strip club, which isn't the kind of thing I want popping up on my work computer.



Considering DVD Talk's ban on adult material, isn't accepting advertising from a strip club a little questionable for a site like this?

Ban on adult material? I wish. Adult DVD reviews are the top center ad on EVERY SINGLE PAGE of this site.

Basically, I guess adult content is banned unless it generates revenue for IB.

Yeah, but that's just a link to another website - not an in-your-face graphic that may be cached on my work computer.

I just saw the stripper ad for the first time. What comes up all the time for me is an adult gamers ad that carries a big adults only on the side of the banner.
Not funny.
