From Malware delivered by Yahoo, Fox, Google ads | InSecurity Complex – CNET News:

And people wonder why high-end computer users usually surf the web with ad blockers?

I completely understand the thought that I should allow ads from sites that I like since the ads support the content, but since the site owners do not know who programmed the ads, I can’t truly trust the ad content.

So, beyond the annoying bounce, flash, whiz-bang, protecting myself from malware is yet another reason to block unwanted content.
