Maybe I'm not enough of a webjockey to really care a lot about this, but I haven't come across a pop-up I couldn't close, delete, or ignore to my satisfaction yet. If I find it was a cookie from a pop-up ad that got me signed up to the Porn-site-of-the-week email from ClasslessIdiots.com, I'll change my opinion, but until then, I'll click X and keep reading.<P>Or am I missing something?<P>------------------

Do the advertisers pay Keenspot for just RUNNING the pop-up ads, or do they pay based on how many people CLICK the pop up ads? If it's the former, I say bring 'em on. I have my trusty pop-up window stopper installed, so I can view my comics in peace and cartoonists can get the money they need. I love loopholes <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/smile.gif"><P>------------------

I used to feel strongly that Keenspot should ban pop-up ads. But whenever I leave Keenspot, pop-ups come at me from out of nowhere! If everywhere else you go on the web has pop-ups, Keenspot might as well have them too. <P>At this point, I'm all for cartoonists making money off their art. And if closing little popping boxes will help, then I'll close little boxes! <P>*Note: The opinions expressed above are mine and mine alone. Don't assume that because I feel this way, anyone else does.

Pop-up ads = revenue for you guys. It's as simple as that for me: anything that brings money to my favorite webcomics is fine by me.<P>------------------

Go for it.<P>I don't mind pop-ups. If I see one I don't like, it only takes a second to delete it - and, if it results in more money for you, I might even respond to some of them <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/wink.gif"><P>Dave<P>------------------

WOW! PC bashing at it's finest! Can't we all just get along? This reminds me of the differences between Yankees fans and Mets fans. If you're a Yankee fan...you have to bash all Mets fans. And Visa-versa (Or Mastercard-versa). And we could probably fill this thread with hundreds of explanations as to which one is better for what reason, what purpose, etc. etc. etc. I say, life is too short to spend time complaining about this issue and . . . . wait a minute, Life is too short to spend on this message. I'm going outside to ride a bike.<P>------------------

You missed the winky ( <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/wink.gif">), which of course applied to the "going outside" part of Dr. Scottie's posting. This part was the jest; Scott's actually firing up Bobby Bimmix's Bike Riding 2002 for Playstation 2.<P>--------------------------

well since everyone is agreeing with what I feel I'll let others make a more impassioned response. I love the concept of keenspot (hey I even bought some of the comic books) and I hope it stays around. If the pop ups work..go for it. Some will click and some wont. I mean even the larger sites.. ucomics.com and unitedmedia.com use pop ups and interstitials.

Heh. If pop-ups bother you, why not spring for Keenspot Premium? (Although I have it, and still get ads, but our internet setups a little odd...)
