You do not have to register to read stories on the site, only M stories. (Mature) To read anything M you will need to register on the site. When you register, you shouldn't be getting any pop ups. Registering will also allow you to save favorites, review, rate, and be notified if any updates occur. I will terminate any members who join that I don't feel have good intentions. (Reviewing spam/advertising/obvious troll name). You also have the right to use the shoutbox like I do. Just don't go crazy.:)
