We use the popup to encourage folks to join and to get them to subscribe to the newsletter. Lots of folks read the new digest daily. We WANT them to participate because the true value of a form like this is the content that it contains - more people posting = a better forum.
We don't share or sell our member list ever - but we do survive on ad revenue and so displaying ads is a necessity. We do this instead of having a "pay to view" model or "membership required" model. I understand privacy concerns however and as a viewer you are free to make your own choices.
