It's just a popup add. DA needs to pick their advertisers better. I occasionally get shit like that showing up if I don't have a popup blocker going. For sights I visit frequently I drop the add blocker (here for instance) as long as the adds aren't intrusive, and one time I even clicked one of the snafu ads confirmed the company was legit via BBB and bought something cause they advertised something that I wanted.
One day should right a guide on effective internet advertising because most companies that buy ad space don't know shit about marketing. Every MBA book I have just frowns at that type of advertising. It's all buzz and bullshit. If you want to reach a target market. Great, If you advertise on a website, also great, but you need to do 2 things one is differentiate yourself from your competitors and two is to focus the fucking ad. 1 feature 1 issue. Walmart for example: How are they different? Low prices. What is the focus of their ads? Low prices. I know programmers hate people in marketing as a rule of thumb, but eventually your going to have to pay big bucks to a douche bag so that your advertising is effective.

Cause yesterday I got a massive flood of trojans [by downloading Google's Picasa, mind you] that neither my AVG anti-virus could get rid of fast enough nor my firewall could prevent from happening.
