    something VERY weird

    Just happened...

    i was posting a response to a comment in one of my posts... when I posted it there were links in it I did not post... on words that were not hyperlinks...

    I fixed it by editing the post immediately...


    But something very odd just happened.

    No, it ain't funny... whatever it was, and it may well have been Java... caused odd hyperlinks to be inserted in a response I posted to a thread... I even went back and edited them and the odd hyperlinks remained... and there were no hyperlinks in the original post.... Was finally able to remove them by deleting the words in edit post that were linked... and substituting other words...

    I have no Idea whether the odd links were visible to others or not... but they came out on my computer as underlined hyperlinks in blue in the post after I exited the editor...

    For those unaware, java is a universal language that will run across all platforms and it has been identified as a potential avenue to hack into your computer or otherwise give others access. I am only giving brief description you can look it up if you want, below are instructions to disable it..

    To unplug Java:

    In Firefox, select "Tools" from the main menu, then "Add-ons," then click the "Disable" button next to any Java plug-ins.
    In Safari, click "Safari" in the main menu bar, then "Preferences," then select the "Security" tab and uncheck the button next to "Enable Java."
    In Chrome, type or copy "Chrome://Plugins" into your browser's address bar, then click the "Disable" button below any Java plug-ins.
    In Internet Explorer, follow these instructions for disabling Java in all browsers via the Control Panel. There is no way to completely disable Java specifically in IE.

    Thanks to the OP for bringing this to our attention and a big Thank You to Yoda for giving the information on how to correct it.

    Mr.Yoda:

    What about Java Script?

    Do you recommend this for most/all users?

    something VERY weird

    It has been suggested to disable java until they fix the hole. I am not well versed but I know it is new and it sort of fit the problem described above.
