I am sure others have asked this. However, perhaps the management of Cox Communications should answer the question. Since I PAY over $90.00 per month for internet services, including email, from Cox, why should I bear the cost of annoying ads popping up?? When logging in, I even have to wait for the ads to appear first. It seems we PAY to be annoyed.
It's not malware, it's the Cox website. They just want more money.
