Default What the hell is this?

A new infestation perhaps. This is the first time I've seen this.




Where's evilghost? Does someone have his email address?

It seems like a more intrusive version of the intelletext ads. If you get close to the highlighted words it comes up. It's not too much worse...

It popped up for me using Firefox earlier. In this thread, where Capt mentions "email", the word was double underlined and the popup appeared like the intelletext ones do.

I never have gotten anything like that.

I guess AdBlock+ takes care of it all.

I'm using AdBlock Plus. It's not popping up, they come up whenever you rollover text that are underlined.

It's random on which words it selects. If you load the page enough eventually you might see it.

I hate ads on most sites, but love them here. Sometimes I accidentally click on them, and that's a good thing. I love this site.
