Yes, admittedly, I hate pop-ups. I surf with my pop-up blockers enabled in both Firefox and Safari. If they somehow get around my blocking them, I immediately close them. I never click on advertisements. So I'm not really any different than you.
So why does this one not bother me? I think it's because usually, a pop-up is advertising something for another company. Something I'm not interested in at all. This is instead an offer from the web site I'm visiting. Now that's something I might be interested in. And if I'm not, it's just a handwritten note that I can close right up. It has me thinking about how some of my clients could possibly benefit from such a widget. Hmmmm...
