Re: truly evil internet machinations

From:Connie McManus <>

I visit the archives from time to time and have never had this problem, but
MAYBE  John D had more than one window open.  I've had similar things happen
to me before.  Those little snotty things always come to the top so whatever
page you're working in, you get them.  you either ignore them, or click on
them and then close that window.  grrrr!   I got caught in that same "Free
$150 shopping spree" spam meister the other day.  It just appears and  you
think you can click on the X to close it, but instead, it links you to their
stupid page.  I ended up closing the window and startin all over again with
what I was looking at.  Fortunately, I knew the URL that I got blipped out
of.    Yeah, I hate these evil things, too.
