Anyone else reading posts, and random words in the posts or even in the sig, are hotlinked to ads?

Edit - lol here is an example! I SS'd my signature having "cable" ninja hotlinked to some ad!

Yeah, I was just looking at that. And the site with the explanation. It's rather weird tho. There was a link in Jude's sig where it said "audio" and the ad was there and disapeared right in front of my eyes while I was watching the page. I wasn't even reloading the page or anything. The link just dissapeared (sp?).

f5 and there it was again.

Yeah.

Do you know how to get rid of this?






EDIT: Actually, it is really not a big deal. If it is giving Head-fi any revenue at all it is worth it for me.

I'm very much bothered about this kind of commercialization of Head-Fi. It really devaluates the posts -- comparable to interrupting commercials in TV movies. (Just opened a new thread about this -- by mistake in the headphone forum.)

It's the pop up kind of ad that bothers me because (like I said in the other thread) I have the habbit of going over the text with my mouse while reading and with such an ad popping up in the text it bothers you while reading.
If the link only turned purple or anything then I wouldn't be bothered because then you can just read on.

I don't see them on any of the threads which leads me to believe it is on your PC's. Jude has mentioned nothing of this and it is not something he would be likely to endorse.

Sorry, John, I didn't mention it yet, because I didn't know it was applied to the default template. I asked that it only be applied to one of the forums as a test run, and I wanted to see it in test mode first before even that went live. I feel I have to at least test it, and I'm going to.
