I Do Not Like POP Up Adds.
Especially the giant one which says
'Eliminate Annoying POP Up Adds'

that says it all really. You could unite all races and religions with your passioned prose.

More of a statement than a poem. Rings very true, though.

a rhetorical epiphany of sorts.

The online advertising community has become more and more clever. I hate those little pop ups that actually have a taskbar with the little close and minimize buttons and then when you press them -- ZAPPO! You're being redirected to credit retrieval sites.

Even worse are those ones that float into the middle of the page and block content. Those things piss me off something fierce. There's absolutely no way to close them, you have to wait until they disappear. I thing they slip past most popup blockers, too.

no even more insidious are the ones which are honkin' big, and do not have programed into them a close option so when you try to close them at your task bar, AND they conviently are screen resolution 1 million and 3, so that you can not resize them, and you can not clcik and drag them by their title bar, and the result is you have to close your entire browser and start again.

* close seconds are AK47 rapid fire pop up adds that descend on you so fast that by the time you can click one, like 4 more have taken their place.*

a pox on all nerdie Otaku's who went over to the dark side of the force and were Borg-a-sized by Bill Gateus of MicroBorg.

You know, you can just push alt-F4 repeatedly to close those kinda popups.
