A few days ago a friend got infected because I've sent him a link to a download page (not a pirate site) that happened to have an ad with a huge "Download" button on it. Point taken - in future whenever I help some less security savy friends secure their computers - installing AdBlock will be a must.
Still a lot of sites rely on add revenue, so I would be ok if there was an option to block only the obnoxious and shady ad sources.
