Oh, Those Annoying Pop-Ups!
The Man Sans Q
describes his experience with software that blocks pop-up windows:
"However, Pop-Up Stopper often blocks access to certain "click-ins" - including most notably the "comments" sections of many blogs."
Say it with me, people: that's not a bug, that's a FEATURE!
In fact, we are waiting for a "Blog-Stopper", that will prevent annoying bloggers from promoting their bizzaro views. "Blogger
" was partway there, with a version that prevented folks from publishing or archiving, but they seemed to have backed off from that product.
Anyway, here is a good, free pop-up stopper
. And if you want to open a "click-in" window, either turn off the pop-up stopper, or simply press CTRL-C.
BTW, are you taking tech advice from the MinuteMan? Hard times all around.
