javascript popup

i'm not sure where to put this so i'll start here. when i clicked to submit a reply( i think on the new members forum), a window titled javascript application popped up with the info that replies were limited to 20000
characters and my reply was 205 characters(figures approximate). i think i cancelled or exited and the reply was posted. the only other time
that i have encountered such a window was about three days before when opening an article on the nytimes and a javascript application script(same window design, size and screen position) appeared asking if i would be interested in answering some survey questions at the end of the article. i clicked yes and never saw any more of it and completed the article ok. i didn't think anything more of it because i figured it was another popup though it had the sense of originating from the times as opposed to an advertiser(which means nothing except it's why i did a yes).
so, when the second jas window appeared on lq with a message that seemed at the least unnnecessary, i wondered if anyone knows what the story is or could point out the way to find out more. i noticed that i have a port(111tcp) open to sunrpc which i don't know why, unless the printer is involved. any thoughts would be appreciated. i posted here because i thought the size of posts could be monitored but why would i be warned when so far beneath the limit?

What's your question exactly?

I need a little Modus Operendi before I can figure out what you want to do here.

That message box pops up only when you hit the "[check message length] " link.

thanks for your replies to my confusion. now that the 'check message length ' button has been pointed out to me , the window's content no longer seems inappropriate-only that it appeared when i clicked the 'Submit reply' button (yes, that,s what i hit, no question, hence the reinforcement of the idea it was a warning). taken together with the nytimes thing(to which i had recently posted a link on lq), i got to realizing how little i know about how things were operated and that i'd better pay some attention. time is always an issue, and there's only so much of it for my computing knowledge(a speck in the cyber cosmos); so i take one thing at a time,usually as necessity dictates. what started out as a desire to control a telscope(12" reflector homemade; the sky on a clear frigid night from the top of a isolated mountain is heady stuff) has brought me to a fascinating otherworld of interesting people and cool devices.
so, i'll chalk this up to an inadvertancy of some sort, not an alien takeover(governmental interference remains on the suspect list) and i thank you, jeremy, for taking time to point out a simple possibility. my thanks also to Thoreau, to whom i might better have phrased the question, "what is sunprc and why is it on port 111?"
i now believe it is part of jdk which i put on here for the plugins and a robotic programming thing sun had going on a while back. feel free, however to enlighten me at any moment, on any issue, as time marches on and i have many miles to go before i sleep. thanks.
