Nice computer. It would be a shame if anything were to happen to it.

Should we have to pay to keep popup ads off our computers? Steve Outing quotes online media consultant Mark Potts as suggesting it.
There’s nothing wrong with charging for ad-free content. But there is something wrong with having to pay to prevent pop-ups. First, any decent browser (i.e. not IE) already lets you defeat pop-ups. Second, I shouldn’t have to pay anyone not execute unwanted programs on my computer. That’s extortion.
