Maybe it is just me and my computer, but starting yesterday I noticed links to outside sites advertising somewhat related products for sale, such as Ebay and Walmart, in the text of project write-ups/responses. Here is one example. I am not picking on Les because I highly doubt that he included a link to a piece sold by Walmart. Has anyone else seen this or do I have a computer issue? Or, is this something created by the new, new site owners to drive revenues?

Nope, it’s not you. I’ve seen the same thing. Although tempting, I just won’t click on the links.

-- ok, is it cut once measure twice, cut twice measure once???? I know....I'll just keep cutting until it's long enough.

I had intended to delete this post since I found another one dealing with this issue. Apparently, the new owners are using Viglink to enhance revenues. Yes, I am signed in. I would suggest everyone respond to the other post.

These have been there since long before the new owners but they should only be displaying for guests, not when you are logged in. Let me check with the company to see what happened.
