Personally, I like it. Not sure why but I like it there. Didn't see it with the drops of water but I'd kind of like it if, as I scroll down the page it to either follow my scroll or for it to take up the whole left side of the page (or other ads to be there) since going from an ad to blank is a little annoying.

BTW, I also like the ad. The drawing of the diver is pretty cool.
