Consumer Resolution: Boycott Perpetrators of Pop-Ups

We all know that pop-up ads on the web are evil, and many of us have been blocking them successfully for years. Every now and then, a pop-up somehow evades the blocker. Usually these are for lesser-known companies, for whom there is nearly 0% chance I would ever even think of patronizing. However, NetFlix is among the offenders, which makes me not want to patronize them. Currently that is not a problem, I use BlockBuster online. But I have maintained a soft spot for NetFlix, and if I did not have young children at home, I would have considered switching back to them. But the evil pop-up evasion ads nix that.
