    hyperlink ads in post text

    Just today I'm starting to see random underlined texts in posts throughout the forum.

    If I hover my mouse pointer over the text, an ad appears.

    Is this just me, or is this some new advertisement tactic? The ads were not gun-related and I'd like to rid myself from them, if possible.

    I've ran into this type of stuff on other sites, just never here before.

    I just had the same thing happen in one of my posts. Random words showing as links. Edit doesn't show a hyper link but changing the text makes the link disappear.

    I uninstalled an AOL toolbar that came with a Firefox add-on, and that seemed to clear it up.
