    Does anybody have any statistics to show the % of internet users who have ad blocking software installed on their systems. As far as I am aware nearly all of the ad blocking software deletes CJ links.

    Due to the UNDER-whelming demand for Popups and slow loading FLASH Ads the net population of dial users installing Ad Blockers is about 4% and rising. Some ISP's like EarthLink offer both Ad Blockers and spam filters as standard options.

    The IAB and other online advertising associations are trying to lobby Congress for a law requiring all Internet users have to watch a minimum of 4 hours of Popup Ads per day or they loose their ISP dial up account. In the meantime they have devised a way of rapidly feeding multiple popups/unders which defeats the Ad Blockers by locking up the users browser with the last Popup showing til you re-boot.

    Alternate is to push the crap out of POW popup killer on your sites and pray all the Flash programmers get a job at McDonnalds.

    Question of the day. Do these popup and Ad blockers trash the Whenu -Gator -eBates cookie ID swapping popups?

    Very interesting ??'s

    I'm curious as to the answer on these myself.
    If the pop up killers DO effectively avoid redirects - I'm 5 seconds away from promoting it to our site visitors.

    With my best,
