/me points out that an ad blocker probably won't block an ad that has these charateristics:

a) it's just a click-on-image-link to something

b) it's not scripted

c) it's not animated

d) it's not part of a frame, it just appears someplace on the page.

old-style banner ads, in other words. no need to go nuts with the stupid-script and the in-your-face animations. we've learned to tune it out and block it with software.
