New surfer, there are some site using new method to promote their site, which annoy me much. When you visit the site, nothing special will appear beside their site content. But when you try to leave the site by go to other site or closing it, it will pop-up a message, asking you: "Are you sure you want to leave?" "Will you stay at our site?" and those pop-up message require you to choose right answer to leave their site. We are not doing IQ question, not English exam, why should we answer their fool question in order to leaving?

Yep, that would be really annoying to me. I would not go back to those sites, because they could well be leaving tracking devices and viruses on your computer as well, it is kind of sad that some sites feel it necessary to employ this kind of stuff to try and keep people at their site.

Yes, this makes me pretty angry, especially when you have to hit "Ok" to leave, and cancel to stay. ~Noodlebrain0
