Well... I just recognize that even advertisers are sensitive to the point at which consumers say "enough" and avoid the product because of the ads. They're not stupid... they are not going to do something that will drive away the customers they want to sell to. So they figure out what ads work... in e-books' case, understated ads... and that's what they'll use.
