You can also fight back against pop-ups by using the Mozilla browser,
which has a built-in pop-up suppressor.  If you're really into the
bleeding edge, you can also try Moz's slick cousin, Phoenix.  This
browser has a nice method of allowing users to opt-in to pop-ups.

And, if you have any communication with Microsoft, encourage them to add
similar functionality to Internet Explorer.  If IE were to implement an
elegant pop-up blocker, that would have a significant impact on the
effectiveness (and hence deployment) of pop-up ads.
