Just get a pop up stopper and you will be grand. www.webattack.com there is a feck load of them and they are freeware, I havent seen a pop up in a long time, plus get Ad-Muncher, that'll make you think internet ads dont exist.

no no...thats not my complaint...i have one...im not at my home right now....shouldnt popups be illegal?
they are just like a cyber form of harassment...
December 16th, 2003, 09:15 PM
yeah and they should make billboards illegal to - dont they just harrass you when your driving!! And what about magasine adverts - they harass you when your reading an article.....or TV comercials - harassing you by interupting your program
YEAH LETS MAKE THEM ALL ILLEGAL

why are you defending pop ups dude?
cmon now...your telling me that they are not harrasment?
December 16th, 2003, 09:59 PM
I'm not defending them - but they're just another form of advertising.
yes an annoying form but thats all they are - you don't want to see pop-ups take the advice of people in this thread and get a pop-up stopper
hell opera even comes with one built in!
you can't oulaw them just cause they are an annoyance no more than you can outlaw the TV comercials - if a site chooses to include pop-ups thats their business - anyways with the fact that anyone who is the tinyest bit net-savy now has a pop-up blocker they will soon stop being used as they are no longer getting seen and the advertisers will simply come-up with a new way of trying to get your attention.
