703 KB is a ridiculous size for an ad banner. Some mobile browsers will not cache it, so it gets re-sent from the server on every pageload, which can clobber mobile network bandwidth.
Also, touch too close to the edge of the screen, no matter where you are on the page, and the browser starts loading JH Audio's facebook page too.
I will not visit head-fi from a mobile browser while this banner's running. That's not even by choice, unfortunately. The site's become nearly unusable and is actively hostile to my data cap.
