Popups from Trib website; for shame!

The Tribune website has begun to send my machine all sorts of popups. I use Firefox, and don't allow popups, so I haven't been too bothered.

However, popup ads are an example, imho, of exactly what not to subject on your customers/viewers by a content provider. Even if they weren't so annoying, they represent an attitude that the site owner should have complete control of a viewers experience when viewing content.

Now, the Trib wouldn't be that overbearing, would they?

AMEN, Aaron -- at home, using FireFox, it's no problem -- but if I check the Trib at work, where I am forced to use MS IE, I get FOUR popups. FOUR.
