Ie they just mentally blank out banners... i know for SURE i do this, i couldnt tell you the last banner i saw if my life depended on it.
Yet if u use creative text, it appears more authentic, and for me, gets better click throughs.
Also you might want to try changing the "Banner" into an image that doesnt look anything like a banner.
