Oh, come on. History doesn't work? You were at an objectionalbe site, 
weren'tchya? :) You ashamed of something? huh?

Speaking of objectionable, I stumbled onto a blog, and then clicked a link 
for their newsletter. Is it just me, or is Actionalbe Results a rilly rilly 
bad name for a newsletter? I realize it is corpspeak, but honestly it's 
worse that Dansani's, "Treat yourself well. Everyday."

Anyway, I was reading an article posted to a Web design list:

This is the link for the pop up.

I was just reading that the arms race will continue. Reearch was published 
recently indicating that popups are far more effective than any other form 
of online advertising.



"The problem with defending the purity of the
English language is that English is about as
pure as a cribhouse whore. We don't just borrow
words; on occasion, English has pursued other
languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious
and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary."
