    Maybe this has been posted before, but now WhenU has their OWN pop-up that is NOT a $SaveNow pop. It says
    WARNING .. you may be paying too much when shopping online. Download WhenUShop Now

    And when you hit the X to close it, you end up on one of WhenU's pages (not the green or blue one) but a new page, and it happens so fast you don't know what happened until you realize you aren't at the page where you intended to place an order.

    The con artists and hijackers are getting more adept as the enabling networks and scummy merchants embracce their crooked business model. The FTC/FCC should really prod Congress for a privacy policy with teeth in it to shut down intrusive advertisers and spammers

    If we were "brick and mortar" and someone put a banner across our storefront saying "Go right Next Door for 70% savings on what you're HERE for!"

    Could we complain to the FTC/FCC? Or even call the police? But we can't because we're just on the Internet, and anything goes?

    (This reply is dis-jointed, badly worded, but you know what I mean!)

    We do need some heros. The kind that track down the scum/spamlords dens and bring their hosting servers to their knees. Nice plus on your techie resume if you can write you brought down month after month Chinanet, ox.com. exodise Kornnet and the spamcop.net blacklisted domains with a nifty DOS attack. Even the spyware & Gator has to report back to the villians via a hosted service...unless your willing to xerox all your monthly statements and mail them to free up bandwidth.
