banner site n.
[warez d00dz] An FTP site storing pirated
files where one must first click on several banners and/or
subscribe to various `free' services, usually generating some
form of revenues for the site owner, to be able to access the
site. More often than not, the username/password painfully obtained
by clicking on banners and subscribing to bogus services or mailing
lists turns out to be non-working or gives access to a site that
always responds busy. See ratio site, leech mode.
