Another "conspiracy": Pop-ups and advertising

I think there's something smart about "pop-up windows."

I have ABP [adblock plus], as well as 2 other ad-blockers installed, but there are still popups.
I think there's a political reason for it; "the war over advertising" and "minimal tolerance of spyware."
"The good people" insist that you always get some ads, and some invasive pop-ups, because the history of our species has proven it to be good. [This is a theory]

This is also true in "PirateBrowser," a download based on TOR and Mozilla that is distributed by The Pirate Bay; it allows ads and popups, even on HEAVY AD Sites like 3rd-rate torrent websites, which are listed on the main toolbar.
