Hey guys, I kinda been on the sabbatical her on LJ’s and as I have been on other pages also I noticed certain words that are linked in orange that show ads. I think this is annoying at least, and downright dirty to invade a personal blog for ads. take a look at my last project and see the word fish linked to it ( this one probably got it to ) Am I missing something or have we got another spam style issue going on ?

Are you finding “links” inside peoples’s posts.

I haven’t seen this.

I’m not seeing this at all. I wonder if it is some sort of spyware infection on your computer?

What browser are you using? I remember MSN had devised a system that would auto search on any word you clicked on. but that was years ago.

Glad you found the culprit. Had me worried, there. But, nothing is orange on my machine.
