Don't click on ads usually

However my (& I guess many others) main hatred of ads goes beyond privacy isses to potential malware issues. Improving privacy is great, but I will use a variety of ad block technology regardless as I just don't trust some of the JS that gets slung out by ad services as we have had so many cases of malware delivery via ads. Ad block is on a par with anti virus as basic computer safety measure. Just revert back to "safe" NO JS texts and images, I'm happy with risk free ads, but not with dangerous ones
