I thought it was adware too at first. *sigh*, the underlined words are one of the things that bugs me most about IGN (at least I think it's IGN, all I remember is that it has all those annoying green linked words in their articles). Oh well...looks like we'll have to live with it...or find a new forum

From the experience of financing a site myself in the past, i completely understand the need for it and of all of the methods it is the least intrusive in my opinion honestly.
This site must cost a fortune.
Still is a bit glaring to see though.

Well, the thing that bothers me about it is it makes the signatures and posts look odd in that you think that the person who made the post is trying to use an embedded URL or something as opposed to a simple pasted URL. I guess I'll just have to get used to ignoring green.

I think it's a bit much to embed in forum posts...maybe on the front page, but not in each and every post on the site.

Meh, they honestly don't bother me. They just scared me because I thought I was infected with spyware.

I don't mind ads, it's only annoying when they interfere with what you are trying to accomplish. E.g. popups are terrible. I adblock the pricegrabber thing because it makes the pages here load extremely slowly...otherwise I would just leave it there and not even bother.

This on the other hand is a bit different...it doesn't exactly get in the way, but it alters the feel of every message that somebody posts. Namely, it kinda reminds me of the old usenet days when you had to put up with every other post being a spam post. Or worse when some people put those stupid "free ipod" links in their signatures (god I hate that.) This whole linking thing just feels too similar to that.

EDIT: Wait, I know what it's even more comparable to. Those stupid little banner ads where they shift each frame in the banner by one pixel to the left, right, up, down, etc and make it have a bunch of flashy colors almost like it is just begging for you to look at it. Everytime I see those, I always get distracted when I am trying to read any text near them (thank god for the "nuke anything" extension, or else sometimes I wouldn't be able to read and fully comprehend some things on the net.) It would like a neighbor having a garage sale and then blaring a bunch of air hornes as loud as he can so that he can get all of the neighbors attention so that he can bring them outside to gawk at his stuff.

Interesting, it only shows up in Firefox and IE for me, but Opera still appears as normal.

It doesn't seem all that "intelli". Things it links to are silly, like shopping.yahoo.com for the word "download". It even adds links to the "Edit Options" page, heh. Green links everywhere! *cries* Make it stop.
*AdBlocks it and goes on with life*

I posted this in feedback forum earlier, but I'm moving it here.
