I see the same ad, but next week it could be different. But as most
ads are trying to sell something, including downloadable products, I
think the download page should be ad free. Or is there a way to
restrict it to text-only ads, in the right column. I don't much like
the ads anyway, but the only really bad ones are those with a big
graphic 'Download' button right at the top of our download page.
Keeping them as text only and in a separate column would work for me.
