Who actually uses link banners?

Who actually uses link banners? I once created one, but nobody I know would use a few hundred square pixels simply to link to me, or anybody for that matter. Unless you're a corporation providing a service, the whole idea of establishing a brand through logos on banners is somewhat absurd. This idea came to me while surfing today - lots of personal sites create banners, but nobody ever uses them. Ok, that's just my little rant.
And how was my test, you might ask? My final test went pretty well. It's over with, and now I'm pretty tired because of it.
