Those very annoying double underline links that spawn a pop-up when your mouse gets anywhere close to some keyword...

On many of the Forum these days...

Block the following in your firewall or browser:

vibrantmedia.com
intellitxt.com

It will be short lived and they will start a new domain tomorrow... But Carpi Diem. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Get Adblock. It's a FF utility and it will allow you to shut out just about any popup or banner.

Firefox 1.5.0 for me and I'm getting the underlines and occasional popup ads. Firefox will tell me that it's blocked a pop up then it will show me what it's blocked /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I run both... and checked both... got the ads on both (but I don't mess with the advanced features of Firefox). Better to me if they can't even get in the router.

It was just a hint (and the folks that own this Forum may have a different opinion... shhh /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif ).

id guess that the folks that own this forum are the source of these particular undurlined thingys (that, by the way, make it VERY ANNOYING to read a post)....

that being said, i do realize that the owners are not hosting a bbs just cause they are bored...its' a business, and they exist to make money, alas, one more layer of crap to go through to get to all the valuable info, insights, ideas, etc......
