    Those using ad-blockers will be among the 1st to shout out loud and say "I told you so". Anyway, I'm just wondering if a user didn't block ads through any means (Adblock, NoScript, hosts file, Privoxy, Proxo etc etc) would he/she be sent to malicious web pages if he/she didn't click on those ads in the 1st place.

    I'm not talking about infections, drive-by whatsoever or means to protect yourself against it (most of us here have pretty good setups) but simply whether the malicious page is served to you if you didn't click on those ads.

    Adblock Plus is always one of the first extensions I add to Firefox and partly for this very reason.
