Make this ad go away!

Today Slashdot had an article about a site about Star Wars action figures in the 80's. Not too interesting unless you're seriously into collectibles. I'm not.

However, I'm happy to report that the site brings up a popup ad for, of all things, popup blocking software. (Sometimes it serves a different ad, but if you reload a couple times you'll probably get it.) That means someone, somewhere, felt that popup ads were intrusive enough to be worthy of elimination, but not intrusive enough to keep them from using them themselves.

It's like distributing ads for brick-proof car windows by wrapping them around bricks and chucking them through car windows.

'Course, this only happened because the version of Netscape at work doesn't block popups. Silly Netscape.
