a simple courtesy when posting links:

please let us know if the link has pop-ups.
i know i won't even post a link if it produces more than one pop-up.

Thats a good idea luvs. If I see a pop-up, I just X-out of the link that was posted. Pop ups suck!

I think that is a great idea. I don't always know when a site has popups though. I use Firefox which has a built in pop up blocker that works very well. I can't remember the last time I was a pop up ad.

I use Firefox too. I think it's one of the best.

Has any one seen the TV stations that are using POP UP's?
:x :x
These are actual advertisements not just the station logo that are sometimes in the lower right corner of the screen.
