Has anyone gone to the Torch website today and after loading the main page (and also Mitchell's and Powell's columns) had a pop-up ad TAKE OVER YOUR MAIN WINDOW??? This travel site ad loaded in the window I was using to read with, including in the little pop-up window, and thus I could not read what was there. So today, I simply kept hitting stop to repeatedly to keep it from loading (and even that only slowed the process down), but tomorrow, I will forego the site altogether.

That's why I use Mozilla (http://www.mozilla.org). You can disable pop-up ads from within the program (no plugin or other program needed). It's the only way that I can handle going to 1wrestling.com.

Just remember: Mozilla RULES, IE SUCKS!

I'll agree that Mozilla rocks... but that damn pop-up on 1wrestling.com shows up for me, and i have them disabled.

Just search for "pop up stopper" at download.com. Works for any browser, and easy to turn on and off.

Although, if there are any sites that you enjoy and want to support, try to let the ads show up. The webmasters are just doing it because running a popular site can be very expensive.

I got so used to using IE by default, I forgot I had netscape on here also. The same thing happened again today, but the site downloaded fine in netscape. That allowed me to see a code error in one of the pop-ups, which probably caused the whole thing. Looked like a missed quote, but I didn't analyze much. I probably should consider e-mailing the torch to tell them that either UGO is screwing with them, or someone made a boo-boo, but I don't care that much.

I had been using IE 5.0, if anyone cares. Not that I expect it...
