Yeah, they do slow it down a little bit, but the amount of income I'm 
making off of them is rediculous.  IMO, it's worth it, and with the vast 
amount of sites using them, most of your regular users are probably used 
to their quirks.

The one thing I can't stand about them, is that in firefox, if you use 
your mouse wheel, you can actually scroll the "iframe" that the ad is 
placed in.  I wish google would get their act together on these 
things...  it can't be /THAT/ hard.
