The advertisers need to understand that they really can't win this war

I wonder why it would be so difficult.
Just host the ads on your own site, and use a randomised name for the image (ie not /banner_ad.jpg)

And don't use JavaScript to deliver the ad. How is that difficult?

I checked today, and the site was trying to call JavaScripts from fourteen domains!
And that doesn't count nested calls, which they have a lot of.
Fourteen! The mind reels.

They bought a consumer-grade D-Link WiFi web camera for roughly $30, and cracked it open.
