Re: Hard to kill

With iOS you can hit the "tab" selection button and just kill that page. I haven't ever run into such a hard to kill popup on iOS so I can't say for sure this works, but unless it really flummoxes Safari in an especially bad way it shouldn't be that hard to escape. Though the less clueful (i.e. typical) user probably wouldn't know to do that, or to check the "suppress further messages" dialog and therefore be at the mercy of the scammers.
