So here is a question I have been wondering about. Do mod authors who release their mods on sites that have malware deserve respect? And this question comes from a mod author (for other games). All of my stuff has been released on a site that is incredibly strict about clean files and a clean site. I'm just not sure of the amount of respect required to knowingly infect my PC with malware or viruses.
This is exactly the reason why I don't mind sites that reupload people's mods to their own site, with proper credits but without original link. And this also comes from someone who has released the occasional mod to various games through the years (and who has never minded those mods reappearing on other sites with my name attached to them).

Thanks to everyone who's commented on my thread.

So which hosting sites would you guys class as 'good'?

the official mod hub, the direct download from many modding groups (ls-modcompany and americaneaglesmodding as example).
With ublock origin (free adblocker for firefox) i can use basically all one-click hoster, like workupload or share-mods without any adds or pop-ups.

On my PC I run BullGaurd antivirus, should this not protect me?

AV programms usally just check downloaded files for a few specific behaviour. Some programs are whitelisted to do their job, like most programs you run (browser, games, office programs and the like).
But If you activate malicious content in your browser on your own, the AV program can't help you. That's what adblocker are there for, as they remove unneeded content from most websites.

I know Nexus is good. 1.5 billion downloads for the original version of Skyrim alone says something.
