Love in the age of Pop Up blockers
In the wild west bordello that is today’s internet, roaming around without a pop up blocker on your browser is like having sex with strangers and no condom. It’s not something smart people do. But what about those sites you love and trust? Here’s where that web prophylactic analogy falls limp and soggy into the gutter.
When you love a site and you block their ads you hurt their livelihood, so that’s like eating at your favorite restaurant and stiffing them on the check. It’s like requesting tunes all night at the piano bar and never tipping the player. If you love and trust that site, turn off your pop up blocker, make sure they get advertisement revenue from your visits. It’s easy to turn off the pop up blocker for just that site, so please spend a couple days going through the bookmarks and fixing the sites you like.
Those sites you don’t like but rubberneck at like a driver past a car wreck? Better to leave that condom on.
