(Some Guy)   Media Metrix will longer counts popups as page views. X10 rankings drop like a rock.   ( divider line

Proof our school system does not work.

This is borderline deserving of the "Hero" tag.

Now if we could just get rid of X10 altogether, the world would be a much better place.

X10 is like a festering zit on my ass.
2001-12-27 10:20:49 AM  
They should call it "XXX10".
2001-12-27 10:24:04 AM  
If someone will buy me an X10, I will swallow it.

"Getting more granular with its reporting, Jupiter Media Metrix will be sorting Internet traffic into more specific classifications, and giving pop-ups and pop-unders their own category, rather than including them in the overall rankings."

Erm....nice sentence.

"Getting more GRANULAR?!"

So I guess all my Orbitz stock is worthless now.
2001-12-27 10:37:05 AM  
So, will their new ranking system include the java traps from pron sites?
2001-12-27 10:37:23 AM  
There IS a God!
2001-12-27 10:39:22 AM  
So, is there any way to get back at X-10. I'd like to personally "shake hands" with the festering pile of shiit that wrote those ads.
2001-12-27 10:43:37 AM  
I know what granola is, but what's GRANULAR mean?
2001-12-27 10:47:54 AM  
Why stop at X10? I'd like to shake the hand of the pricks who created JS, which allowed all this shiat to happen in the first place. Turn off JS or grab a copy of Panicware's Popup Stopper (actually stops all popup windows, you don't have to enter Key words like those other shiatty products)

"X10 is like a festering zit on my ass."

I agree wiht tihs pots
2001-12-27 10:52:54 AM  
GRANULAR. Adjective. To be like granny. Acting all grouchy, having a big blue hair do, driving poorly, slowing down the fast lanes on the road and in grocery stores, being all wrinkly and saggy.

"She used to be a MILF, but now she's all GRANULAR." or "He would have won the race, but his driving became to GRANULAR."

Want to get rid of X10?

They have an opt-out button on their website which I will happily modify for you...

Get rid of X10 popups for 9,999 days

GRANULAR: GRAN-you-lar (colloq. phrase) a phrase used in the American south to proclaim that one's grandmother is deceptive. Granular, you said youse gonna save some 'at thar squirrel stew fer me!
2001-12-27 11:18:24 AM  
Maybe they are realizing that these cannot be counted as 'views' as most people kill the window as soon as they see one pop-up.
2001-12-27 11:23:37 AM  
Good show Afree87!
2001-12-27 11:29:24 AM  
What, no. They should change their policy to "not allow pop ups and pop unders because they are the king and queen of bastards."
2001-12-27 12:49:29 PM  
Well this is cool and all, but what are they doing about those damn shockwave(?)(Flash?) ads that are popping up all over the place on the actual page you're viewing?

The other day I was on MSNBC's website and right before my eyes the ENTIRE PAGE turned into an advertisement! I had to click on a "close" button on the ad to return to the story I was reading.

As if ad banners wern't annoying enough!
2001-12-27 12:58:44 PM  
Yeah, my fourth post in like three years.

Heh sorry about the headline, it was late at night and that S just snuck in there.
2001-12-27 5:04:18 PM  
Hizzout I stopped reading after they did the same thing with flash ads.

If I actually gave in and bought an X-10 camera, does that excuse me from seeing any more popup ads?
2001-12-27 6:27:03 PM  
I used to do surveys for media metrix and it's the biggest bunch of crap anyways. Their system for measuring web use is so flawed that it's totally useless. Dumb ass corporate advertising crap.

GRANULAR: gr-ANUL-ar (root) from the latin GRAR, meaning "GREAT" OR "LARGE" and ANAL meaning RECTUM. Used commonly as a homosexual post-coital term. (i.e.) "That was a Gr ANAL aR reaming"

. . . or so I've heard
