Pop-Ups are Depraved

There is a very special place in hell reserved for those who subject their website visitors to pop-ups. It is below the level of serial killers and just slightly above the level reserved for Hillary Clinton. Pop-ups are so viciously, fundamentally evil it would not surprise me to learn that Hillary herself invented them, perhaps with assistance from Internet-inventor and billionaire climate alarmist Al Gore.

This includes pop-overs, pop-unders, pop-sideways, pop-anything, and most especially the ubiquitous crutch of the incompetent, the ultra-evil exit intent pop-up.

Why in the world would anyone torture their visitors with this sort of obnoxious nonsense?

Update: This condemnation most definitely includes the newly-pervasive cookie consent pop-ups that now swamp the Interwebs.
