I write a lot of quest walk throughs for EQ2i. I don't even SEE the ads, much less get malware. Why? Because I use the Ad Blocker Plus plug-in for Firefox, and when I need to look something up on the wiki, I window out and open Firefox.I recognize that this denies Wikia some ad revenue. Oh, well.

Even without ABP, you can disable all scripts (NOscript plugin). You can use an adequate antivirus program. Etc.

I personally wish that Wikia would police their ads better. The EQ2i mods have absolutely NO INFLUENCE over the ads. If you encounter a spammy malware-ridden ad, yeah, report it to Wikia. But better yet, just don't view the ads at all.
