    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?

    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.
