I agree with Chris. When did apache mirrors were allowed to advertise their hosting services
through their apache mirror site? I thought mirror operators are supporting apache by providing
an official mirror, instead of using apache mirror as an advertisement oppurtunity?

I am sure we all agree pop-ups are one the most annoying things in the world.
