I prefer text ads only because they blend in with the font/link size color I use in my content.
Makes sense, doesn't it?
I think the human brain sees an image ad and it says, "AD AD AD AD IGNORE IGNORE IGNORE."
If it sees a text ad it thinks, "PROBABLY AN ADD, BUT NOT 100% SURE, AND HOW NICE THAT IT SORT OF BLENDS IN AND I'M A LITTLE FOOLED."
Images still have their place, particularly on a really well designed site with more graphics -- mine has almost no graphics.
