I don't mind traditional banner style ads as long as they are loud (e.g. the old punch the monkey ads). I use Flashblock on Firefox so I never see Flash based ads, but I don't otherwise block ads (except for popups/popunders). I do really hate ads that float over the content or impede my access to content in any way. In the end advertising helps pay the bills so that I can access stuff for free.
