	Tough.  Banner ads aren't a guaranteed form of revenue.
How would you feel if I said my cache at home filters banner
content out?  You do not have a guaranteed right to spew
advertisements.  If banner revenue is a large part of your
revenue model, I think you need to consider revising it.

	Not having a site that is cache friendly is the equivalent of
not having a site that works with Netscape|IE|etc.  I don't see how your
content is the responsibility of anyone else but you.

	Ahh, so your page is disgustingly slow, and you want to keep it
that way.
