Not if you're an idiot and can't measure input vs. output and figure out
how to charge more for what you deliver than what you buy from your
upstream, no; but if not well then you've got to work pretty hard *not*
to have good revenue, if not a profit too!

Cool.  Good for you.

Now you need to learn just how to make sure that you can count those
display events.  I suspect your attitude is doing more to prevent this
possiblity than to ensure it.

Are you really sure you want to be turning people away from the content
that they've sought out just because your banner advert spam blocks the
content until it's displayed?

Eg. if your medium were print would you really want all of the other
pages in the publication to appear blank before your advert was viewed?
Get Real!  You'd be laughed out of town forever!

This is a stupid discussion, and not suitable for NANOG.  Please take it
