    Wow pop ups being the most annoying thing on the web.... who would have figured... (I hope you can hear the sarcasm in my voice)

    It's too bad that more domains don't do that. In all honesty I make it a point not to visit domains that regularly carry popups. The only reason I'm here is becuase I have pop up protection programs installed now. I find them irratating, abusive, and a waste of valuable bandwidth.

    Now every site should do that.

    I agree with you Cryo, but even more when you said "valuable bandwidth..." you see, I have 28k :haha:

    I'd like to meet the guy who first stumbled into his boss' office and said he had a brilliant new idea for advertising...The pop-up ad.
