Is there an easy way to hide informational banners (like SOTM announcements which are nagging me) on the main site? The main sites's source code shows several ids like banner and _osm_banner_sotmasia2017 - can they be used to hide the banners?

A Mediawiki extension for example provides the use of a cookie named dismissSiteNotice to achieve the hiding of notices.

Are you actually seeing banners more than once (or once per browser instance)?

yes - for example after a forced page refresh with CTRL+F5

For info, I'm not seeing recurring banners after ctrl-f5 in 3 browsers here (SeaMonkey, Firefox, Chrome).

Richard's answer works for my old opera 12.17 ;)

You could use a browser extension such as Stylish to insert this CSS rule on all pages at openstreetmap.org:

#banner { display: none !important; }
permanent link
