CPM is fundamentally flawed as it fails to reward the branding value
of the campaign. The publisher takes all the risk whilst the
advertiser risks nothing in return, paying neither for the inventory
used nor the value accrued from users repeatedly seeing the advert
even if they do not immediately react to the ad.

Personally I feel there are many more effective ways advertising
than popups, the prevelance of anti-popup software has gotten to
the point where valuable inventory is lost to viewers who don't
accept ads. Added to this is a drastic reduction in popup clickthru
and you're basically seeing slow demise of the popup ad.
