Splitting For A While
I've noted several folks hereon lately mentioning the phony security and/or update required popups that won't go away until you either close the tab to the site or close your browser altogether. I have fallen prey to these obnoxious popups myself. The latest one included audio to make it more annoying.
Many folks are getting so frustrated with the increasing regularity of these popups coming with almost every PP post they try to read, and concerned likewise with the potential danger of malware or viruses, that they are choosing to stay away from the site until assured that something has been done about these intrusive annoyances.
I cannot say as I blame them for their concern, or the depletion of their patience as this popup problem is now into at least its second week. I, too, am concerned that these popups may be vehicles for investing my computer with nasty code meant to do me harm. And tonight, after three straight incidents on three straight posts I read, I have to ask myself if the folks who are taking a hiatus until the situation is addressed have the right idea.
While I have no intention of taking such a hiatus, I do plan to be careful about those popups.
