I hate banner ads. HATE HATE HATE them. It is EVIL to put them at the
top of a page. Put them at the bottom, if you have to use them at all.
As JPTXS said, that's not what people came for, so it does not belong
at the top of the page.

I refuse to click on banner ads, out of principle. They are like SPAM.
