strange GREEN highlighting of words on this BBS?

Is anybody else getting random highlighting/hyperlinking of words here? I thought it was a spyware/virus on my computer but it does it on my other machine too. Most annoying [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]

Re: strange GREEN highlighting of words on this BBS?

Showed up on.....<nobr><nobr><a class="iAs" style="border-bottom:darkgreen 1px solid;text-decoration:underline;color:darkgreen;background-color:transparent;" href="#" onclick="return kwC();" target="_blank" oncontextmenu="return false;" onmouseover="kwE(event,215363);" onmouseout="kwL(event);" onmousemove="kwM(215363);"><nobr><a class="iAs" style="border-bottom:darkgreen 1px solid;text-decoration:underline;color:darkgreen;background-color:transparent;" href="#" onclick="return kwC();" target="_blank" oncontextmenu="return false;" onmouseover="kwE(event,215363);" onmouseout="kwL(event);" onmousemove="kwM(215363);"><nobr><a class="iAs" style="border-bottom:darkgreen 1px solid;text-decoration:underline;color:darkgreen;background-color:transparent;" href="#" onclick="return kwC();" target="_blank" oncontextmenu="return false;" onmouseover="kwE(event,215363);" onmouseout="kwL(event);" onmousemove="kwM(215363);">toyota</nobr></a></nobr></a></nobr></a></nobr>, 4x4, <nobr><nobr><a class="iAs" style="border-bottom:darkgreen 1px solid;text-decoration:underline;color:darkgreen;background-color:transparent;" href="#" onclick="return kwC();" target="_blank" oncontextmenu="return false;" onmouseover="kwE(event,215310);" onmouseout="kwL(event);" onmousemove="kwM(215310);"><nobr><a class="iAs" style="border-bottom:darkgreen 1px solid;text-decoration:underline;color:darkgreen;background-color:transparent;" href="#" onclick="return kwC();" target="_blank" oncontextmenu="return false;" onmouseover="kwE(event,215310);" onmouseout="kwL(event);" onmousemove="kwM(215310);"><nobr><a class="iAs" style="border-bottom:darkgreen 1px solid;text-decoration:underline;color:darkgreen;background-color:transparent;" href="#" onclick="return kwC();" target="_blank" oncontextmenu="return false;" onmouseover="kwE(event,215310);" onmouseout="kwL(event);" onmousemove="kwM(215310);">nissan</nobr></a></nobr></a></nobr></a></nobr>, and a few others, but not 100% of the time.. [img]images/graemlins/bs.gif[/img] Now THATS annoying.
The banners i can deal with, but having these stupid f#[email protected]&amp;! scripted popups all over the board? NOT cool.

edit:
if you edit a post with the popups, you can view all the code.

Re: strange GREEN highlighting of words on this BBS?

I"d rather have that than the popups. its like a pop up that you canselect tosee or not deal with. and MSU colors are green and white...so its all good

That's what a pop-up blocker is for. I haven't seen a pop-up in 6 months. [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Re: strange GREEN highlighting of words on this BBS?

thats the thing though....its not technically a popup. Its html thats inserted into your post when it picks up on certain keywords, which then causes a jscript (or php or something) window to open. its not technically a browser window, so i dont think popup killers will be able to detect it.
Either way, ive seen other boards with it before, and it really irks me. Actually, thats the #1 reason i dont post in one of them. id rather just get the one popup at the beginning and be done with it than have all these #&amp;$%! rollovers in the threads im trying to read.

Re: strange GREEN highlighting of words on this BBS?

I know. It's a pain in the ass. I thought it was spam the first time I saw it.

Add this to your HOSTS file in Windows (the site in bold is the offending site):
127.0.0.1 ds.serving-sys.com
127.0.0.1 media.fastclick.net
127.0.0.1 banner.off-road.com
127.0.0.1 us.i1.yimg.com
127.0.0.1 us.a1.yimg.com
127.0.0.1 srd.yahoo.com
127.0.0.1 animal.discovery.com
127.0.0.1 www.popmonster.com
127.0.0.1 adlogix.com
127.0.0.1 servedby.advertising.com
127.0.0.1 mediamgr.ugo.com
127.0.0.1 track.weather.com
127.0.0.1 delta.weather.com
127.0.0.1 itxt.vibrantmedia.com
127.0.0.1 media.fastclick.net

Those are all the "offending" advertiser sites that ORC has been affiliated with directly or indirectly in the last year and a half. Some of the sites are a popup of a popup site.
