I'm just surprised by the fact, that you insist on having a border
around those ads, but fail to demonstrate how it's going to improve the
situation. You just state that it does.

Before you start, please keep in mind that some people *will* click on
the advertising, be there a border or not. If you want to nanny them as
well, I suggest you sponsor the TortoiseSVN hosting (and some pizza for
Stefan and the team) to make it ad free. How about that?
