    Default The latest spam menace

    Anyone else noticed this recent auto linking of some words used in posts...

    Last Season


    being two I noticed on other threads, I haven't come across it on other forums, and I'm wondering if its a commercial arrangement mbongo have come to with advertisers..

    Just to explain, those words have become links through nothing i have done. Hmm interesting they de-linked after I edited.

    I shall repost without an edit.

    Ah.
    That last post of mine has just changed now too.
    We should never have shaken hands.
    Looks like I'm now infected too.

    If you hit 'REFRESH' the words appear normal, then within a few seconds thy both transform into links. The the same time the page loading info in the bottom bar says something about ad.adtech.blah or something like that.

    Is this 'bottom bar' a new internet thing?
