That's probably a copyright infringement. The ads on pages are part of the
page themselves. Not fetching ads is one thing, altering pages for
later redistribution (say, to proxy users) is another.

-1 on documenting a case of copyright infringment with this idea.

If I hear of a site that filters out my ads (or any other content they
feel like), I'll probably ban them from accessing it.
