"Most experienced web surfers will tell you that the most annoying aspects of life on the internet are pop-up ads and spam.
Sure, some think that publishers who demand registration for news are a pain in the digits, or that sites which don't accept alternative browsers are sacrilegious. And of course, the unrelenting stream of porn and other nasties is a major turnoff. Still, they don't come close to making people's blood boil like junk e-mail and "pops" do.
That being the case, you might think they couldn't possibly work. But if you did, you'd be wrong. On the contrary, they are enormously successful."
