Mainly because these sites are doing something to my browser that I didn't
ask them to.  On a psycological level I guess the user is loosing control,
and gets worried when something suddenly happens that they did not expect.
On a practical level, maybe I don't want my window maximised.  e.g. On my
(odd bod techie) computer I know that the window *can't* be maximised
beyond a certain point however hard it tries, and any attempt to do so
will result in me just being able to see part of the screen.
