Angry Beware of Blue Double underlined words.

Looks like something has infected many posts with links to other sites. I don't think it is originating from XD Talk. ?????????? It looks like a virus or bug.

It could be that your computer is infected with adware.

I was seeing them in the posts when I wasn't logged in (before logging in). When I logged in they dissapeared. Try logging out and looking in some of the posts.

I logged out and the blue double underlined posts are everywhere with links to other sites. Logged back in and they are gone. It is some kind of adware or virus. I advise not to click on any of those links. It is not from my computer.

Interesting. I logged out to see if the posts mentioned were there and when I went back to the chatterbox I was still logged in. Anyone have a clue as to whats up with that??

Ok, I logged out and got it. It's in text advertising.

Ed, you have to read posts while you are still logged out. Log out and come back to this thread while logged out and in the first 2 posts there are 2 blue underlined words. 1st post is "Bug" the 2nd post is "computer".

This could be a advertising source of income apporved by Mark as it is defined as "Text Advertising" by Google. If Mark didn't set it up then some one else is making money when readers click on the adds, each click adds to the income for whoever put it in the forum.

multiple computers all do this, have done it for over a year.... thought it was deliberate. I'm pretty sure its been going since Mark took over. I figured it was just a way to pay for things when you had people that weren't part of the forum skimming it.
