No, it's new. And like most banners, this one is annoying too. But if I owned this site, I'd probably also have a banner there. So I don't have that much of a problem with it.

sure whoever pays for the site to remain up can remove the banner

Ahhh... the sweet smell of capitalism, the beauty of commerce. You just can't escape it, even on the web. The reality is that banner is generating somebody some money even though none of us will ever click on it. Talk about voodoo economics.

Well, the 'Casino.Net' banner has pissed me off! It's annoying, and if you click the 'go away' button, it sucks you in. When I finally got off that damn site, my scroll-bar was gone, and I had to start all over!

Boo! Boo on the Casino.Net banner! http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/mad.gif

Could be worse; at least they're not the popups that crash your browser if you try to close 'em.

I was misled by Netscape Navigator 3.0! The banner is still there with Explorer 4. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/frown.gif
