I thought all the evil ad networks had been dealt with. We are using 2 ad networks now which seem to be quite good at filtering out the malvertisements.
Ad Network #1:
This ad network runs only for people who are blocking ads (which is about 60% of our users). It contains, at most, one annoying popup per page (which can pop OVER any page) and it displays the fake play/download-style banner ads that we all know and hate. Tricking users into clicking is not advertising, but this is the best we can do from the options we have.
Ad Network #2:
If you disable AdBlock, you will instead see only ads from our other ad network. These ads are high quality from recognized brands. There is also one unobtrusive pop (that loads silently in a background tab) and it can be avoided (but I am considering making it unavoidable since it is so unobtrusive).
I work for one of the largest internet forums in existence and if we ever chose to do something like this, we would lose our membership basis in a heartbeat.
