Also, those ads cost the receiver bandwidth (and as a result - either directly or indirectly - money). Many of us are not into the whole paying-for-the-privelege-of-being-pointlessly-advertised-at thing. YMMV :-)

* modest site-sponsorship advertising, I tend to give a begrudging pass to as a cost of receiving the site's service, but when it becomes obnoxious, I yank the plug, either on the ads, or when possible the entire site.
