OFL created the topic: Infuriating Website

I've just been having a look around on the Internet for a large heater and came across a koi carp keeping website that sold all sorts of interesting things. However when I came to leave they had put some kind of blocking device to stop you leaving the website. I've come across this a couple of times before and it really bloody annoys me that they do this. You have to actually close your browser to exit the website. that is tantamount to locking a shop door to stop your customers from leaving. Do they honestly think they're going to get more business doing this?

I make a note of these websites and never visit them again.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

From my point of view, once I've had enough, I want to be able to leave the store quickly and easily , not be bullied into staying. quite frankly, I don't care what the shop is selling, they'll never see me again. There is always someone else to get the goods

If you click on an external link on this website, you will notice that the new website will open up, but this website will stay open in the browser. We are not forcing anyone to stay on the website, but we're making sure that it stays open in the browser.
