    I was looking at this site, when I notice that it appeared to be trying to load a pop-up. I have Panicware pop-up blocker. Am I seeing a failed attempt to run a pop-under here?! :mad:

    Yes, that is what you are getting ready to see. It looks like it is looking for a certain cookie, if it exist, it will load the popup (id here as popunder). Once per session looks to equal 0, which means it is most likely turned off, thus each access will most likely provide a popup.

    I'm not a programmer, but that is what it looks like to me. :)

    As you can see; I was trying to look at a picture of "Calvin & Hobbes", and it brings up this website. I just now noticed the "Adult E-Cards" on the site's menu.

    Really nice. You click on a nice, warm and fuzzy pic, and they link you to a place like THIS. :rolleyes:

    What happened to the days when "click here to enlarge image", did just that. Now; every single picture hot-links to somewhere... and it's not necessarily where you're led to believe.

    Thanks for the reply pinntech...
