Get Back at Them

So I am wondering if there is a way to find out how the popups link to the web page and copy that. Then create a program that would pop up that page over and over. That way amount the company has to pay the pop up company would greatly increase. It would take some computing power and many people doing it, but it might just cause the popups to backfire.
Anyone else have thoughts on this? There has to be something we can do.
The Malware and Adware is getting crazy.

I've mentioned elsewhere that Mike has been trying to spread the word regarding a possible future law to help thwart malware if enough people contact their senators and demand it.
It's called SPYBLOCK Act, S. 2145, and while maybe not as immediately satisfying as watching the malware folks' systems sizzle, it'll have more widespread and lasting effects.
