I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
Yep - I'm with the bailout crowd - I get a single popup and I'm out of there and likely won't come back.
A screaming comes across the sky.
It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.Pynchon - Gravity's Rainbow
I never see them, they're all blocked. I can't tell you the last time I saw a popup of any kind.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
My wife loves them, as long as they are mine.
But, seriously, I voted in favor of popups because everybody else voted against them.

I not only hate pop-ups, I hate the fact that YouTube makes me watch commercials now. I got so used to the idea of "free internet" the last 15 years that I am completely and hopelessly spoiled from here on out. I am grumpier than my Grandpa, and that man split wood by hand until the age of 80, just out of spite.
"Political speech and writing are largely the defense of the indefensible. . . . Thus political language has to consist largely of euphemism, question-begging and sheer cloudy vagueness."
~Orwell, Politics and the English Language
Pop-ups lasting more than 4 hours are a serious medical condition.
My wife isn't fond of good morning pop-ups.
I love the smell of burning moonbat in the morning.
I have Addblock and Flashblock installed and the most annoying so far are those that pop up at the end of the scroll.
