I hate those things too! It really makes it difficult to read the blog.

I had it on my website briefly and now I’m embarrassed! I thought it was kinda cool but it’s definitely not worth it if half your readers are annoyed. Personally I’m more annoyed when people don’t make it obvious from their text where the links are leading to.

I should say the link is a quote directly from kottke.org! So, Kim, I didn’t mean to offend you or anybody who does have those up. I’m so sorry.
I had barely registered the pop up (over?) images, and while they didn’t annoy me I had no idea what they were. I like to use my mouse to explore images like it’s a laser pointer and when I went to mouse over this image of the Land of Oz a Snap preview appeared obscuring the image. So that’s why I turned them off, a strange habit of mine.

Thanks for this – I had wondered where those previews were appearing from. For anyone who has a WordPress site, I’ve just found their instructions for how to turn off the previews from your site

I actually like them. But hmmm, if they annoy people then maybe they have to go…
