I'd suscribe but...

  1. Every time I log on to the Allnurses site and see the "one time" pop-up window inviting me to suscribe to the e-zine I am tempted. I like the forum offerred here and I have met some very nice folks. Many of the postings have answered questions of my own.
    I'd suscribe to the e-zine if only I didn't get all the spam that would follow.
    I inquired online a few months ago (to the lending tree.com) about refinancing my mortgage and STILL get a ton of spam about loans available, credit cards ect...
    I can already see the junk mail coming in if I suscribe. Is there anyplace I can read the e-zine archives without suscribing?

    I have one e-mail box for my subscriptions and junk mail and another for my "personal mail", which is only given out to friends.

    Since we are on the topic. Can't we stop the pop-up! It says if you click here you will never see it again but I always click it and it always pops back up!

    Roachell, is it possible that you have cookies disabled? If you're not accepting cookies, then the site may not remember that you've answered their question before.

    1.) I've never gotten any spam from them; and I have 2 e-mail accounts: one personal and one nursing- related.

    2.) Roachell, my son purposefully removed my cookie feature from my iMac; not only is it disabled, but it just isn't there anymore. After working with Brian and the annoying pop-up, I found that the easiest thing to do is just click on this screen first, then the pop-up stays on but it is behind everything else and I don't see it. The pop-up is happy, I'm happy, and Brian's not bugged by me anymore; it works. My son got rid of the cookies because of the fact that he felt there is too much personal information being given out by cookies on the Internet and this is a way to cut down on that.

    I think i have a program that you might like. It is called popup killer.
    I downloaded it a while ago and it will eliminate almost all popup windows from all sites. Here is the link.
    If you decide to try it, there is a menu on the left. Click on download and then click on PopUp Killer 1.4.
    Hope you like it as much as i do.
