    Language my friend, language. Remember Be nice, or else. .. :)

    Besides, we are experimenting with pop-ups that might have caught up in bad time. I'm really sorry for this experience, will reach back to our community and optimize pop up time.

      Hah. Assuming foul language equals malicious intent is so 2016 ;)

      As for your response; fair enough. I personally believe (untested, no numbers, mere anecdotal evidence) the tech audience dislikes popups to the extend where one bad interaction means they'll avoid your brand.

      Popups seems to "work" though. Plenty of evidence of that. Doesn't mean it's not a shady pattern. (Warning: incoming hyperbole!) Link farms used to work too. Sending your emails to a purchased database might work too.

      My personal vendetta towards un-requested popups stems from my desire for an internet where people never get annoyed. I want every interaction with interfaces I build to be desirable.

      Candidly, the foul language in that first response is part of that. My little contribution towards making people reconsider interpretation of words. Words too often hold the value the reader puts upon them, as opposed to the value intended by the person who wrote them. If we could read intent, the world would be a better place for it.

      (And yes, this post is over-thought beyond belief!)

        +1 to the popups doing more harm than good, Learnt it the hard way .. :) Will be more careful with our experiments, I promise.

        About the post, I wrote very candidly without giving much thoughts on it. If you have anything specific here, I'll be happy to hear that.

        Language is no big-deal. Really appreciate you taking out time to sharing your honest thoughts here, it's good to learn from fellow UXers. Have a nice day.
