Thread: Stop the Pop Ups

  1. #1

    Stop the Pop Ups

    I think we should let our opinions be known before JupM begins selling our emails addresses and implements other marketing strategies other than harmless banners.

    In answer to both threads about this.....I haven't received any pop-ups or pop-unders.
    Of course I use Firefox (latest release) and Proxomitron, so it would be unlikely for any to get through.

    I have no adware on this box. I got the pop up in Fox and Kmeleon as well. It wasn't every time either, it was random on page loads and exits.

    Before you start panicking, you might want to read the Privacy Policy which is there to protect you. This "campaign" seems to be an overreaction to a single incident, IMHO.

    Hey Soda~

    You are a chosen one.............they never send me any pop ups........

    I do look at some of the Ads..........well that's what they are there for?..........it is in the AUP.......I am allowed......what are the pop ups about? like what do they advertise?

    That is a serious question, as I have never seen any...............nor have I had an invite to this conference room thingy.............maybe I smell?

    Chill bro

    I checked your profile, and everything seems fine, Soda... I can't imagine JUPM banning your IP, either

    nihil- a small pop up with this image

    BTW- I don't use pop up blockers. I dont wan't symptoms of any sort of malware to be hidden. I want to know when my system is infected.

    And yeah, I can't access AO w/o using a proxy. And I am pretty sure I am clean of malware. Neg, I pm'ed you why I think I'm blocked.

    Now thats logic.

    Rather than prevention. Cure.
