I recall seeing a "Steps to build a better Stackoverflow rep: 1. Clone Jon Skeet Steps" ad on the StackOverflow website.

Where did it come from?

What happened to it?

Yes, it is removed. Quite a shock to me too, and big BLOW to the community –  enigma Aug 8 '09 at 22:35

I think it was for FinalBuilder. –  Pauk Aug 8 '09 at 23:20
    
what do you mean, FinalBuilder? –  enigma Aug 10 '09 at 22:10
    
That is the product that the Jon Skeet ad was for. –  EBGreen Aug 11 '09 at 1:32
    
@enigma, I mean the advert was for FinalBuilder - finalbuilder.com –  Pauk Aug 11 '09 at 20:15

As EBGreen mentioned, it was an ad. But it wasn't removed because it was innapropriate or anything... it was just time for a change. Banners come, banners go... but that one was fun.
