I used to occasionally click adds, but since I was annoyed by the expanding ads I've had them blocked.

That doesn't happen anymore. I agree that the ads IGN (IGN > GameSpy > ClassicGaming > TMK) used were annoying.

Who clicks on ANY banner ad, anyway? (what I want to know is who the dingalings are that actually do those "__ the __ and get a free __" things)

Even if the ad is for something interesting, I don't click it anyway, mostly out of fear of pop-ups, viruses and my own guilt over doing it in the first place.

Guilt? No one is harmed by your clicking. Clicking on an ad does not require you to purchase or take part in whatever is being advertised. And it's easy to avoid popups (close them, or use a browser with a popup blocker) and viruses (don't download anything).

I honestly don't click ads. They are just 'not there' when I look at a site, brain just ignores them. Even though, I believe it is important to have them if they are useful (help pay for the site costs) but otherwise, yea... the ads aren't that bad, I just don't click them.

Agreed. Here is all I have to say about it.
1. Don't like pop-ups? Simple. Don't click on ads.
2. Really interested in ads?  go ahead and click on them. Ignore pop-ups about
"U JUST WON A FREE WII* LOLZ
*$1,000,000 Shipping cost"
3.  Honestly, I just don't understand some ads, like the one mentioned earlier.
5. There is no #4.

One word. VIRUSES. You don't have to download any thing for them to install themselves. And if not viruses then cookies, adware, you name it.

Cookies can easily be blocked and spyware can be avoided (again, don't download anything).

This isn't a problem if you don't use IE.  And Google wouldn't allow sites with viruses to advertise anyway.

I'm very protected. I have Mcafee, Norton, AVG and Windows Defender which may make my computer
one of the most protected on the forums.
