Disclaimer: This has absolutely nothing to do with A.net's pop-ups.
The other day in my Communication class, the discussion was brought up about pop-up ads. I said it was a violation of privacy. Many agreed, but many disagreed. I noticed when I log onto Internet Explorer (ran on my schools server) there is an ad that pops up. I think this is ridiculous. Some of the ad's even have sound which is real, real lame. I think that spam is one thing, but some ads take up the whole screen and you must do the alt+CTR+del and cancel out the task. That is a waste if it is just an ad, I think the ad's on banners are fine but the pop ups are going too far. What does everyone think?
