The Similar Threads seem to suggest this has been done before..
Have gotten them in the past.. The questions were about ads on AO..
Don't see any adds anymore (Adblock plugin) nor popups (FireFox standard)..

There has been no change in the policy. If you look at the "Similar Threads" listed below this you'll see that this has been discussed ad nauseum. Take a look at this thread in particular: http://www.antionline.com/showthread...hreadid=259998
I would suggest however taking some time to invest in using Firefox, Mozilla or something other than IE. Not only are you open to pop-ups but you leave yourself wildly open to spyware and other items. I suspect that spyware will soon become a venue to insert something even nastier than it does at present.
