I use a dummy email address for anything I suspect might have spam associated with it. I only use my real one for friends and any online ordering I might do, and even then, I only use the real one with reputable companies.

Hmmmm...lets see...I like the idea of taking away their comps, having the fine reflect their amount of money,oh...can't forget about the 14 inch anal rape by Big Bubba


I had the same problems as Mr Furious, but if he has AOL(like me )then all you have to do is go to pop up controls, and look around for the "other pop up" info. I now hav not gotten anymore of those damn grey boxes if I could just get broadband, the jkiimp experience would be complete...

I don't get pop-ups. I don't see banner ads. It costs me absolutely nothing to do this, and about two minutes of my time.
Yup, but you shouldn't have to.

Banners on sites you visit - fine by me.

Pop-ups - annoying like hell, but since it is so very, very cheap it only takes a few suckers to make it worth the advertiser's while as another poster pointed out. Should be outlawed.

Spammail - Ought to be avoided through the same means as the stickers on RL mailboxes, and as easily.

Links popping up on your Desktop and in your Browser Favorites - Direct invasion of privacy. It's the equivalent of a man walking into your house/flat and putting up posters on your walls, and if you tear them down he'll be back the next day with new ones. Yes, my system is connected to the internet and therefor connected to all kinds of information traffic, but my flat is also connected to the community road/street system, but that gives no one any right to walk into my home unless I invite them. It's a violation of constitutionally protected privacy - ought to damn well be enforced too.

"Jubatus" I think you pretty much summed it up that's the way I feel about it.

Anyway... has anyone ever been to Hawaii? I lost count on how many times I have walked down the street while being bombarded with people trying tell sell me trips, dinners, and crap. Kind of like logging on the net and getting spamed. Hell half the time they would ignore me, because I was white and they were trying to sell stuff to just Japanese people. Which I didn't mined.

Though one time I got harassed by a cute little British girl to take a tour of Hawaii. I didn't mined that.
