Yeah I hate those
that pop up on a lot of the websites. If it ever happens here I'll go elsewhere.
The one I hate most is EE Times website. Theirs gives you a place to click to skip
the ad and then it usually makes you sit there through the entire countdown anyway.
I hate their site and refuse to go there anymoe. I look at hyperlinks before clicking
and if they go to EE Times, I don't click - except by accident.
Some of the
news sites are pulling this crap now and I won't go to them either.
