What I hate worse than that is those sites that 'lock' you in their frame. I'm not
sure why they do that. Maybe some of them just don't know. But maybe it's
so that you cannot leave their site? Many sites have had to inclcude a 'break out of
someones frame, click here. Like you, I don't care much for popups either.
