    I am taking many polls if pop-up ads actually work, which I think they make more people angry than actually selling a product.
  2. No, I close pop-up ads right when they pop-up.

    I also have popup blockers in place so, they are not as bad as they use to be.

    I dislike them!

  3. Invest your money in a little progam you can buy called "Pop-Up Stopper." Its well worth it, destroys 90% of all popups that try to come up(works well on Internet Explorer).

    I won't support a company that uses pop-ups as an advertising method. I might get their message, but I'll never buy their product.
  6. Safari, the browser I use on my Mac, blocks pop-ups automatically, so I never see them anyhow.

    I dispise pop-ups. I currently have a pop-up stopper installed. I've never been an impulse buyer anyways.
  9. ...or use Opera (for instance) instead. It has a built in good popup-blocker. Alternatively, instead of closing the popups at once it can minimize them.

    I even hate TV commercials, I just change channels when theres a block of them; i dont even look at giant posters and stuff... I am a very anti-ad man. Ads are used to sell crap, theres a saying here: "jó bornak nem kell cégér" - good wine needs no bush (or good wine needs no chequer)

    what Castelo said times 3.

    I'm surprised popups have existed as long as they have.

    Boy, those Paris Hilton/AOL pop-ups that took over our computer network, Windows NT, and installed itself on 20 people's desktops at work , changed their browser's menu bars and homepages was really popular here at our office.

    We are just all running out to download that to our home computers as well.

    My home computer is obsolete , acc to BilGates, it's Win 98 system

    It may be time to just take a sledgehammer to the whole business, ya know?

    Stupid polls are well , ....

    I just feel that it is an invasion of our privacy, it stuns me that companies are even aloud to do it.
