Default Re: More on the hijacking popups here

I don't get popups ANYWHERE ELSE, unless of course it's a site known for them...then I fire up Ad Muncher before I go there.

I'm not interested in using another browser. I used Firefox and Opera for a bit and didn't care for them.

I don't always get the popups here either, but when I do, they always behave the same (hijacking the entire browser window), and always happen here, and here only. If I close my browser, delete cookies and clear cache then come straight back, usually all is well....for a while. I have not had any popups for about 3 days now. If I had any kind of spyware, that would not be the case.

The popups were caused by this site or something on it. Period. So don't try to make me look like a clueless fool because "the powers that be" can't keep the advertisers here clean.
Why don't you get that chip off your shoulder and insert some logic into your thinking before you start making accusations. Tell me do you not find it odd that out of the millions of pages views this website receives every month, if it was indeed causing popups, don't you think there would be a lot more users complaining about it besides just you?
