  The Internet has become an International Marketplace, laced with nefarious programs and files dedicated to take over your computer, spy on your browsing habits, even installing Trojans and Dialer programs to 'phone home' whenever you are online. This sucks, to put it bluntly.

   I hate spam. Such a waste of bandwidth, resources, time, money and energy all for some clueless person or company trying to scam one of your hard earned bucks, pounds, yen, Euro, whatever. I consider banner ads that come from advertising, popups for advertising, and the extremely annoying HiJackware du jour making the rounds the same as I do television ads ~ and I shut them off, switch channels, mute the sound, whatever it takes to NOT watch.

  Not that I have anything against advertising. I have something against unwanted, intrusive advertising, the 'in your face' stuff that makes me want to take a fly swatter to the tube. Hmm. That'd be a cool little app. heh.

I'm not a big fan of 3rd party Popup stoppers for a couple of reasons. 1: I use MyIE2 (Freeware) as a browser and it does most of them for me, and 2: my Hosts file takes care of the rest of them. Advantages of stopping banners and popups: Pages load much quicker and you will block some of their tracking, and 3: a LOT less porn crapola coming in. Sad to think, the sites making the most money are pr0n. Is that what the net's about ?

If you're a webmaster, there are some tips in the Forum on ways to screw with spambots, i.e., coded email addresses, bogus spambot pages, etc. You don't have to join to read, but to post you'll have to go through a short, fast verifcation signup...no biggie.
