I landed on a post in these forums in my quest for an answer to CD backups, Alcohol120%, Linux and image formats.
As soon as I opened the page (coming from Google), one pop-up after the other started to crop up. I closed one - another one came up. I closed that one too - another one cropped up. I closed that one too - and still another one was up! I closed that and…you know.
One pop-up is annoying enough - but 5 or so, all at once?
I continued, but soon I noticed that I could NOT load any page anymore. I tried to load Google, for example - nothing. I got a blank page.
So I have now two choices:
[li] Either I restart Netscape or
The first option will force me to reload 80 (eighty) pages that I am currently surfing on, monitoring, watching, or just having around.
Are YOU going to type all those 80 URLs in the address field? No? Why not? Who caused this mess?
The second option lets me surf for the moment but makes my own forums much less comfortable. And I can’t use YOUR forum at all, for example, I have to type my password on each and every page - I had to change to another system to write this post.
As I realized this, you lost. Your site sucks.
I decided I had to ban your domain for ever. I use my proxy for years now and I never had to to do this - you are the first who annoyed me that much.
Now, my /etc/squid.conf contains the following lines:
# Changed by root.
# Added acl for losers.
acl losers dstdomain .cdfreaks.com
# Changed by root.
# Added rule for losers.
http_access deny losers
and you are banned forever. Believe me, forever. I will not take out this rule even if you swear to me that you will never ever use pop-ups in this life, and in your next billion lives too!
As you can see for yourself, you are the only member in my losers Access Control List (ACL). And I tell you, I surf A LOT. Imagine.
You are dead for me. Sad, very sad. I am doubly pissed off because I really liked your site.
PS: Don’t be silly. You lost me, but you will lose more in the future. Only losers do pop-ups. Use AdSense from Google - you’ll earn more, you will not be so disgustingly annoying and you will provide a service to your readers, because Google’s ads are context-driven and very relevant. I speak from experience from my own website.
