Or, stop blocking ads and make legitimate complaints known in a more civil manner.
Thank you, Mr. Dasher, for determining that my complaint is uncivilized.
So be it.
To clarify. Webmaster, I attempt to block pop-up and pop-under ads because they are annoying, distracting, unprofessional and extremely childish.
On the other hand, I will and do click static ads that are part of the face of a web page in order to support a website, particularly if the
webmaster asks. If the ad is static and unobtrusive, I'll go ahead and click it in order to trigger the revenue-support needed by the

The developer of the nyguardian pop-under ad has gone to additional trouble to breech a web-brower's pop-up blocker. How hard is this to explain?
Clicking the pop-up blocker means "I won't buy products sold by annoying advertisers." The pop-up/under developer arrogantly breeches the popup
blocker in order to harass the website viewer anyway - it's pure un-civilized arrogance on the part of the ad developer and the webmaster who allows
such insidious behavior to continue.
The nyguardian pop-under is on my screen right now. So far, I'm able to block his malware and spyware. The developer of this ad can go straight to
Therefore, I am uncivilized.
