    OK, never mind. It was me. Somehow I got infected with adware that turns ordinary text into bullshit links.

    No, I get it on my iPad, too. I'm certain my iPad hasn't been infected with AdWare.

    Fuck. Now your "iPad" has turned into an ebay link, too.

    I think this was tried several years ago, and people complained anbout it and it was removed.

    It's kind of annoying, but I bet if that donation till was moving more toward the right, we wouldn't have to deal with it.

    It appears to be a forum plugin called Viglink that can be disabled on your computer or smartphone (that's why I saw it again - I switched devices). Google "viglink opt out" to disable it.

    They're not going to pay for much with Ebay links to expired auctions.

    Although I'm curious what links we might get in the Bizarro forum.

    I had to resort to different methods when Google finally kicked us out for good.

    The last time I had tried Viglink, they were way more intrusive. These seemed to be pretty tame, relatively speaking.
