Alright anybody who has been using the internet for a while knows about pop ups and how annoying they are.

the most annoying pup up i ever got asked this exactly

"Are you tired of annoying pop ups?"

I didn't even consider clicking on it.

I have also had stuff that advertises smileys and "CLICK HERE TO CLAIM YOUR PRIZE!!!!!!"


I hate the stuff that says that I am like the 99 visitor of the day and it tells you that you get something and well, obviously I don't believe it.



How did the internet get so cluttered with stupid bogus advertisements?

what is the most annoying pop up you have ever had?

I don't care what they say, but the ones that won't close or create more pop ups are the most annoying.

I always hate getting the ones that say "CONGRATULATIONS YOU ARE THE 1,000,000TH VISITOR! CLICK HERE TO CLAIM YOUR FREE HOUSE!"

But one time I had one that spawned two or three more each time I closed it, which became insane and I couldn't even CTRL + ALT + DEL out of it. I had to do a hard restart.

WEB NEXUS is the worst as it pops up even when you are NOT on the internet so I downloaded a WEB NEXUS uninstaller program I found on the internet and 3 years later no WEB NEXUS pop up and I also downloaded and installed Ad-Block Plus so now pop ups are rare.

Any popup that happens when I'm not actually browsing for the internet. Thankfully I haven't' had one in a long time.

the ones that just keep going and going and going

like...are you sure you want to close this

....are you really really sure

...wait we know who has a crush on you

...click here to see who your crush is

and they just GO ON AND ON

I wonder who actually clicks on pop ups that say that you've won a free laptop. you've got to pretty stupid to do that, it's like an instant virus download.

I also hate the kind where it pictures the X button as part of the link and you should have it the cancel button.
