Nothing. It's a user's choice and there should be nothing above that.
Nowasays, users are not educated to provide the cents the site's owner
needs, they're on the net to satisfy their individual needs and that's that.
If you can't provide any added value to the user's browsing, why annoy them?
Try to provide targeted, personalized ads. Only that way can you build that
added value and begin a possible business relationship.

I don't use pop-ups and don't recommend them to any of my customers. But
some sites have money stalled on the pop-up models (management tools, deals
closed) and my proposal could be a way to optimize that investment. As for
your slow demise of the pop-up...errr...It depends. You know, I work in
Portugal, mainly for the brazilian, portuguese and british markets. So your
stats really don't apply. Although the brits are traditional pop-up killers,
the brazilian and portuguese users are not, at this time. It always depends
on which market you work for.
Targeted content, catchy design and an easy added-value could sum up to a
pretty good result. I've seen 8% CTR's on one of my customers, no bs.
