pop ups even from PCA

Hi all
While surfing the PCA downloads zone - there was a pop-up advertising PCA -which I already subscribe to - clicking to close it and move on - it would not let me with error trying to close Java applet - most annoying!!!
Surely being 'registered'we don't have to use pop-stoppers to surf PCA pages ;)

Where doe's the revenue come from to run these forums. I use a good pop-up stopper (;o)

As has been said many, many times by the FE this site is very expensive to run and if they don't use advertising you will have to pay to use the site, I know what I prefer, and as spuds said you can always use a pop up stopper such as the google toolbar.

Use the Opera or Mozilla browsers that automatically stop pop-ups.

as I can turn off them - as I do with TV ad's
but when it actually effects the use of my computer when i'm turning them off - that is when I draw the line -
I also make a note of any site I visit that does not let me leave - and black them (;@)
