Funny you should mention that......I just recieved an email from a vendor wanting to place a banner ad on the website. I forwarded it to the BIG boss, with the suggestion that their banner go on the links page. I like the cleanliness too.
Of course, they're also welcome to join the site and put the banner in their sig, too, like DP, PPF and ADTR have done.
Great observation. There'* alot of clutter sites out there.
