Weak

[ #11753 ]
Went to macslash.com like I do ever couple days or so and got a popup. Fired up IE and checked it and sure enough, if you go to the comments on an article, you get a popup.

Maybe i'm an ass, just picky, or some sort of web purist but when I find out a site has popups, that's the last visit I make. People argue that "Well, it pops up *under* your browser so you aren't bothered and you can look at it at later on." I'm trying to think of some sort of witty way to describe why I dont like them but I cant come up with anything. Suffice to say that my desktop is not "marketable advertising space" for any idiot to put his ad for "Pro PC Virus Protect Alpha 2k Gold Beta" on my mac.

It's probably my penance for working for these guys.
