Question

Killing the X10 pop-under ads!

Answer

This question was answered on April 26, 2002. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

The “pop-under” ad quietly launches under the current browser window, so you don’t notice it until you close the window on top

The X10 camera company has used this technique in their ads all over the web Enough of us have been bombarded with the X10 pop-under ads that the company has posted a link on their website to block the ads for 30-days.

A check of the posted link shows that they are limiting the number of days as a variable in the link If you change the “DAY=30” to “DAY=3000” you can extend the “no-bug” time from 30 days to 3000 days! If you don’t understand how to use the information above, just click on the link below: http://www.x10.com/home/optout.cgi?DAY=3000&PAGEhttp://www.x10.com/x10ads1.htm
