Happy Festivus to all!

Have any of you encountered the banner ads which, when served, are automatically launching daughter windows. We've found them on sites mostly served by Engage/Flycast. We find these pop-ups incredibly intrusive and annoying, but I'd like to hear some other opinions, and also effective rates, if anyone out there has them.

Additionally, in general, if you have used pop-up windows before for marketing purposes, have you found them effective?

Thank you,

Loren Baker
