If you *must* put one or two large ads above the fold in order to meet your goals, then that's fine if it works for you, but Google has been pretty clear it doesn't work for them. And a lot of users feel that way too.
Google seems to think that when people are searching for information using their site, that 8 adverts and only 1 organic result above the fold is the right way to go.
To make the playing field fair, I should be allowed to push adverts in to people's faces the exact same way that Google does ... even camouflaging my ads so users think they're being taken to the best information, not to an advertiser.
