The Ironic Delights of the Internet [Feb. 27th, 2003|04:00 am]
A few minutes ago, I visited a site where I got a popup ad hawking something called "Popup Eliminator."

That comes very close to extortion.

I wonder if the mob knows that someone is horning in on their protection rackets?

Or does the mob own "Popup Eliminator?"

Maybe they own the "businesses" that put the adds on, as well.

I got that popup ad too, it cracked me up. I wonder if someone set it up as a joke? ;)

Popups? I feel sorry for the people that can't use Mozilla/Phoenix, or one of their clones.
