Notice on Web Pop-Ups – They Are Profitable

November 20th, 2003 · 2 Comments

It’s quite disturbing news that MSNBC is reporting about those evil pop-ups that bug the heck out of you while you are on the Internet. Now, why are they profitable? It’s because people are clicking on them and buying their products. JUST SAY NO!. No matter how great the product is, don’t click on it. Close the window and go about your business.

There are four things that bug the heck out of me; phone solicitations, someone knocking on my door to sell me something, spam email and pop-ups.

    Yeah, well like u said, now everyone needs to just stop buying stuff from them. I knew people who sold long distance service part time… and they made plenty of sales even though supposedly everyone hates people calling them about phone service.

    That’s fine with me. And I think the guy who invented pop-up stopper should be canonized. I hope he, not the purveyors (sp?) of pop-ups, is a rich person.
