Andy,

Thank you for responding to my question. At least there was a conscious decision to implement these contentlinks.

Most of the time I'm logged in and don't see them, but when I was not logged in, as I mentioned, I was astounded at how apparently irrelevant the links were that I followed.

I know it is not your personal content-matching effort which places them, but an automated selection process which creates these links. As my post examples showed, almost all I saw were completely out-of-context and likely irrelevant to an Airstream forum subscriber on that topic.

Were I an advertiser, I would question why I would spend money for an out-of-context link- but, of course, if people actually clicked on the link, then that is what I would hope for. If that click comes, more hits/pageviews are made, and more support funds go to the forum.

While users can debate if we like them, if it supports the work you are doing and does not interfere with those of us who are members, especially financially supporting members, then I think you're doing a responsible thing.

Again, thanks for the explanation.
