It seems that a company in California has found a way around popup blocking software.
Perhaps the saddest thought here is the fact that this form of ridiculously intrusive advertising must work, otherwise marketing companies would have given up on it instead of finding new ways to get popup messages out. The web has spawned a new lower form of life even than telemarketers. The low cost of spamming everyone certainly makes it attractive to do regardless of how many people you offend. I’m pretty sure that cruel and unusual punishment would be perfectly acceptable in this situation.
