OT - Whats the deal with the linked Ads????

have I missed something or am I the only one this is happening to? Almost every message I open has the word "Jeep" hyperlinked to some car sales ad. Other words have also come up with various ad links? Have we done something to the site or have I picked up a bug somewhere?

If you'd like to get rid of that annoying crap, use your trusty firewall to block out "itxt.vibrantmedia.com"

That's what I did and I don't see it anymore.

Update: I still get the underlines. Crap. More HTML hacking underway.

This bloatware advertising is making the board slow as snot.

Update 2: Right after I figured it out, some else posted the solution Here.
