Mozilla and both Opera have built-in preferences that allow you to enable and disable Pop-Up-Scripts. Alternatively, there's webwasher.

Isn't that more a general question than a JavaScript-related?

thinks ... "that wasn't the question .... didn't he want to know how to block pop-up ads from within a webpage using javascript"

then thinks ... "of course not, don't be so suspicious minded"

window.open = null;
document.open = null;

this is what appens when ppl don't explain exactly what they need:rolleyes:

:( if that is the case, your answer is entirely irresponsible and should be removed

irresponsible and should be removed :eek:

what the hell did I do so wrong...:(
I misunderstood the question...:(
Is it a reason for reacting like that:(

the question simply asked for a script to stop popups...
why the hell, my answer does not apply...:mad:

those kind of reactions against someone that was simply trying
to help, really motivate someone, you know that:mad:

*takes deep breath and remembers to be calm*

Because if that is the case, what this person is asking for is a way of suppressing pop-up ads place on the page by a third-party, over which they otherwise have no control.

If they have no control, that means the ads are put there by someone else - such as a free webhost or service providor - in return for a service.

By offering advice, you;re effectively helping somebody to contravene terms of use which they have agreed to and are legally bound by. Nobody in this forum should offer that kind of help, or even hint at how it might be done.

These are all ifs - I meant no disrespect to you or the poster - I merely meant that if the poster wishes to suppress third-party pop-ups in this way, it is not okay for anyone to offer assistance.

OK that's a prespective of wich we are not shure...
still I belieave this is a knowledge sharing forum, and that's why I'm here, to learn and to 'teach', by sharing experinces...

what someone does with that knowledge is there own responsability....
(in this case, if he kills the popup's, breaking the agreement, the host should take the proper measures and we will sufer the consequences, and I'm shure that he knows)

Still I've done my purpose, and I'm not to question what a person does with the answers to the questions..

If you are, fine, I'm just not that kind of person that doubts someone every time he asks something suspicious...(I'm that kind of fool that trusts everybody, and belieaves that everyone is inocent until proven guilty)...

the point is... If I would ask you how the to execute jscript in a CSS definition, you'll probably say the answer, Ignoring that I could be, thinking in exploiting a webmail or knowing that I could exploit a webmail I simply save the knowledge

Not at all. Philosophically, knowledge has no inherent value; only its application has value.

But more specifically - this has come up before, and I believe that the remit for a forum such as this includes web-etiquette; there are times where I feel the best answer to a question is "unask the question"

eg - if someone says "how do I create a virus" my answer is "don't"
