Why I'm Boycotting Matt Drudge

Ok, let me start by saying I think (99% of all) organized boycotts are just dumb and more importantly ineffective. But having said that, there are some products I refuse to buy and websites I refuse to visit as my own little (free market) protest.

I'm not asking anyone to join me, but effective today, I'm boycotting Drudge. There are just too many damn popups. One or 2 is annoying enough but geeze I'm getting them 4 at a time. If I want that, I'll go to a porn site.

The bottom line: The annoyance of the popups is greater than the worth of the information I get from his site.

I'm a big believer in the free market. At some point if enough other people like me quit visiting then maybe he'll realized he's killing the golden goose. If people don't mind the popups then so be it.

I know I represent about .000000001% of Drudge's traffic... But that's how the free market works.

As for me, I'll go to Lucianne or something.

UPDATE: People keep telling me to run a popup blocker... Please read the extended version of this story... I covered that in the post but many missed it since it is in the extended version.

UPDATE 2: By golly it's a movement.

And another thing I don't get. I use either Safari or Foxfire, both of which block popups. Drudge and a few others are now running scripts to beat the popup blockers. Why? All that does is piss me off. It DOES NOT make me want to buy their product.

Obviously, from Drudge's chair, it is all about impressions... But do the advertisers really want their name attached to this method? Personally, when I see the name of big company on a popup I pretty much don't want to do business with them. If it is on a popup specifically set to override a blocker, it will be a cold day in hell before I give them any money. They might have crammed their ad in my face, but I don't have to pay them to do it again. Period.

If you are concerned about inaccurate, dishonest, and plagiarized material, blame the MSM since it's that material that typically headlines.

If you don't like the popups - then don't go to the web site. Just what Paul is doing.

But why in the hell would you invite or demand federal intervention for what amounts to a pretty piddly little issue?

This isn't a life altering, life threatening problem. Drudge can throw up thousands of pop ups and your life and my life will still go on - relatively unharmed.

I wonder if a case can't already be made that this is "unauthorized access." When users pick browsers FOR the ability to block popups, and explicitly enable the blocking (and/or add additional third-party applications or plug-ins) and the advertisers develop code specifically to get around those preventative measures and execute unauthorized code on the users' computers...

ed:

Hmmmm.

Get a software firewall.

If you're on a commercial broadband line, such as DSL or cablemodem, then you **must** have a software firewall at the minimum.

Frankly I use Kerio, http://www.kerio.com, because it also includes popup blockers, javascript blockers and serves as a pretty good firewall. Frankly I think I posted this before on this very blog.

If you're getting popups or malicious adware, then use a combination of Mozilla Firefox + Kerio Personal Firewall. The Kerio firewall inspects each webpage for links to websites on the exclusion list and will modify the page automatically to block those links. The firewall also inspects the webpage for any troublesome javascript calls and eliminates those blocks of javascript codes completely.

You can also configure the firewall software to allow specific websites so their popups will work, if you really want them to. Or if you're really lazy, like I am, there's a hot-key to allow popups and/or you can disable popup-blocking by uncheckmarking "Disable popups".

Frankly I don't know why anyone wouldn't use a software firewall.

To download:
http://www.kerio.com/kpf_download.html

An important bit: "Kerio Personal Firewall is FREE for home and personal use. For corporate use please see the pricing and licensing policies section."

Frankly I prefer the paid version, but if you're not up for that, then try the free version.

But get a software firewall.

Complete and Utter Poppy-cock

I have (real) commercial lines to the Internet... 2 presently and I'm eyeing a third. I run multiple servers on them.

Every one of my machines sits on a public IP with no firewall. I've never had a problem. All you need is an operating system that isn't full of holes.

I use Macs and BSD machines. No Problem.

Somehow end users have bought into the notion that it is OK for the OS to be completely vulnerable and that we should use a Firewall to do the job of the OS.

Imagine if a car manufacture said, "We're putting in stronger bumpers because we can't get the brakes to work." You wouldn't buy that car would you?

Hmm. Good question. I'm weak on Macs so my use of the term "worm" might be a bit too precise. Let's change that to "exploit".

There are several good security sites but one which offers a pretty good consolidation is Internet Security Systems. Try this search on ISS for Mac and you'll see a pretty nice list of them, many of which deal with Apache. I don't know how you are running your servers so, depending on your software that is serving, you may be more or less vulnerable. There may be a Mac OS worm in there somewhere but I didn't want to read through that many entries.

A good site for security auditing is http://www.insecure.org/. If you have the authority to perform scans, then some of those tools in their repository could be useful in testing your sites/nodes for vulnerabilities.

One site that I visit on a regular basis was running scripts to beat the popup blockers. So, I had tried a different approach. I contacted 25 companies who listed on the site and advised them that the popup ads were interfering with the ability to view their information. I also advised them that as long as this site ran the popups, I would no longer use that site and thus not see their listings. In addition, I would post on a number of web sites a suggestion that the site be boycotted as long as they ran popups. I reminded these companies that they were paying for listings that were overridden by the popups.

Approximately 3 days later, ALL popup ads had been removed from the site, and to this day, I have not seen another.

Obviously, what with "64 comments" already published, this thread, I'm late...BUT, I use Norton Professional (includes a popup/advertising blocker, among other tools and utilities) and have never seen so much as one popup on DRUDGE, or anywhere else on the internet.

I even have to allow sites such as the BBC -- by unique, site-specific, settings -- to allow popups such that I can even view an image at a larger size, Norton is so effective. Without that setting (a per-site setting as to what types of popups to allow, because my default for all sites is to allow none), Norton completely prevents all popups, all sites, globally (if that's what's selected, as I have done).

I tried other popup blockers and found them bypassed by many sites, including DRUDGE, and was equally peeved about it. Now that I use Norton Professional, I have nearly forgotten the problem even exists.

I agree that DRUDGE should rethink his site advertising methods...no one, and I do mean, NO ONE, likes popups (nor popunders).
