The large banner is set to only show up one time, regardless if a reader
closes the banner or not. Most readers are not seeing these banners
The blue banners at the top of the page do show up more than one time. If
you close these banners, you won't see anymore banners.
If the description above is not working for you, please let us know at
donate(a)wikimedia.org so we can follow up.
You may be noticing more banners because we have increased the traffic
today for a final year-end push. Banners were running at limited traffic
the past two weeks. The campaign will end today.
Happy New Year!

How have you determined that this is not simply a
bug or coding error,
It is true that I'm assuming bad faith here entirely on the basis of
the previous bad-faith behaviour.
Then - setting aside the propriety of your characterization of the
fundraising team's past efforts - the correct thing to do would be to
report the obnoxious returning banner as a bug (including enough
information to help figure out its source) and at least wait for some
indication that it may not have been one before casting aspersions on real
peoples' ethics. Treating others like mustache-twirling villains rarely
ends up being productive.
Assuming that it *is* a bug, getting it tracked down and fixed as quickly
as possible so that it affects fewer people is the important thing; rage
over the blunder may be cathartic but is not in fact useful.
