Removed the advert from my site. In hindsight it was a bad idea from the start.

@kev I cheer every time an ad disappears, but couldn't those problems be resolved in code? For instance: reserving the space for the ad in CSS and load it asynchronously?

@ewintr I could have done yeah, but that would have only fixed the shifting issue, not the performance issue. Plus, those with an ad blocker would have just seen a big blank block above the header.

@kev Wow, that's some serious impact considering it was just a text ad.
