Pathfinder.com: Home of Pop-up Hell
Imagine walking into a quiet graveyard in broad daylight and having all the graves open and the worst spirits you can imagine start grabbing at your legs. This is exactly the feeeling I got when I visited Pathfinder.com, the last living vestige of what ten years ago proudly called itself "The World's Best Web Site." The domain Pathfinder.com has served (for at least five years now) as a static pointer to the many world-class content brands maintained by Time Warner. But did you know that almost every one of these brands is now infested with pop-up ads of the sort that would immediately red-flag it as a "dangerous" site in McAfee?
All I can say is unless you love pop-ups, "don't go there!"
