Meg noticed more popups too,Meg noticed more popups too, which I had mentioned seeing a couple of weeks ago. Funny thing is, there are pretty easy ways to take care of these, although I don't use them, and everyone else I know is too lazy to use them. You can download an IE5 Power Tweak from Microsoft's site and it'll add a right-click menu to IE5 on Windows that you can use to assign a site (Epicurious?) to the "Restricted" zone.
If you want to see the list of sites blocked, look at the file in Notepad or something, or I can post a list here if anyone asks for it.
