I'm ok with general advertising and a few pop ups, as those can be clicked off quickly. They sole reason I run Adblock Plus is because of all the malicious software out there getting snuck in through Flash, hidden in ads, etc. It wasn't bad six years ago but (from what I've seen) thanks to the popularity of World of Warcraft and the black market value of in-game currency in many MMOs, I have to do it.

I have been telling people for 15 years that if it's connected to the outside world, it can be hacked into. Some scenarios aren't as likely as others but it can still happen. So I really don't want to spend time having to kill my partitions and the MBR or reloading an image of my drives to keep clearing my system. I will not place trust in advertisements on any website. Not until a strong solution is put in place.
Of course the problem is made worse by the current economic situation in many countries right now.
