I see nothing wrong in placing it on the home page providing the user 
can view or not view it at their discretion.

OTOH, I have a real problem when I go to the dotted.biz home page on a 
116.5dpi wide screen monitor. There I am confronted simultaneously with 
mousetype content text, and madly blinking rotating images. First 
reaction: hit the back button before I start to foam at the mouth, 
pass-out, and hit the deck.
