    You know the ones I mean, things like this…

    “Max Baer, Jr. is almost 90 & how he lives now will make you especially sad.”

    Such pop-up ads are the Internet equivalent of those supermarket tabloids/gossip rags. Case in point: Max Baer, JR. (of The Beverly Hillbillies/Jethro Bodine fame) is actually 81 and worth $50 million. I suppose those perpetrating deceptive pop-ups like this one would defend themselves by saying...

    “Well, he’ll turn 82 in a couple of months, so he’ closer to 90 than most of us. And if you’re the envious type, seeing how a multi-millionaire lives might make you sad.”

    Just another rant from the grumpy old men constituency that is TDPRI. I return you now to your Tele talk.

    That's why I'm happy I use a hosts file to block virtually all auto-generated spam-ads. If ads weren't so terrible, I wouldn't do it but between nonsense and worse things like malware redirects I think it's necessary.

    no way, the internet never lies! in fact, NOBODY ever lies... nobody is ever selfish and nobody ever acts out of self interest. I know this because.... I read it on the internet or made it up and either of those sources are true....

    besides, you can have 50 million dollars and still be a miserable POS.... ask Don Felder! ha ha, gotcha!

    ^^^

    :rolleyes:

    I'm not a Max Baer, Jr. fan boy, I was just speaking some of those facts I read on the Internet, which you've already declared to be a reliable source. So there, right back atcha! :twisted:
