    Oh sweet JUSTICE!
    Linkage
    This is long over due and I hope it puts them under.
    I can't STAND those pop ups that say your system performance is low, or you are broadcasting an IP address ect [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG].
    This is one case I shall be watching closely.

    Oh man, I didn't get one, and just went there again, and didn't get one again.

    Probably just random, but all pop ups are EVIL!

    About time.
    These pop-ups and other assorted crap are making the web almost unusable.
    At home I run AdSubtract which does a tidy job of keeping crap at bay, but at work I have to be really careful. There's been many a time when popup ads have triggered the company's blocking software, which gets logged against my name!
    Then you have popups which wont go away, or spawn other popups, or self-installing dialers. And that's not even counting the porn site! [​IMG] Jeez, I'd hate to be a computer novice finding my way around the web. Must be very frustrating for people who don't know about ad blockers and the like.

    I've been using Mozilla for over a year as my primary web browser and haven't seen ONE unwanted pop-up or pop-under ad in that time. In fact, it's been so long I've forgotten just how annoying they can be.

    The thing is, I shouldn't have to use a special browser in order to not get annoyed by pop ups. The idiots that make them should know better.
