I am really getting annoyed with this particular programming that seems to be popping up more and more all the time. Basically it’s a way for popup ads to make their way around most popup blockers.
There is more then likely a better term for this, however I will call it link piggy-backing. Basically what it amounts to is a standard href link with an onclick call to a popup. Popup blockers don’t catch it cause the link appears to be legit and not a popup only.
Even worse then this is the sites that have a onclick option the whole site. So if you click on anything at all bang, up comes a popup. See how long it takes popup blockers to catch onto these annoying tricks.
