PhotoDude Pox of the Day
PhotoDude Pox of the Day – Sometimes, I just want to scream. Unfortunately, anything more would be illegal. ”Pop-up windows are effective! They get in your face, grab your attention, and require action just to get rid of them. They can’t be ignored and scrolled over like a banner ad on your site. While they do annoy some, most webmasters agree that the results of an effective pop-up window outweigh a minor annoyance.”
Geez, I’d like to get in these people’s face and grab their attention. It might even require action just to get rid of me. But like I said, I merely scream instead. I’m sure they are located outside my county, where I can’t bail myself out via a property bond.
Pop up windows are an uninvited uninitiated process on a visitor’s system, decidedly user un-friendly, and just plain bad business. When I walk into a store, and immediately have someone/something uninivited, in my face, I am most inclined to leave. I know all I need to know. This is no different.
A Pox on Popups!
