sponsored links appearing

It looks like magic is happening in posts: sponsored links is picking out words that relate and turning them into links!
Is this expected?? ( say for example is say van, chevy, airstream) what was plain words turn into???

Yup! commercialism rules! Annoying isn't it. Does anyone have a piece of software to block this? My pop-up stopper doesn't touch it!

I noticed this last night too - annoying! But now it's gone! Did Andy take pity on us and remove them? I'd really rather subscribe and pay up than put up with something that invasive.

Maybe it really WAS magic. I see it gone now as well. Glad someone else confirms I am not yet totally hallucinating.

Looks like non-logged viewers get the links but once logged in they are gone

They are still there, I am just testing out that technology. It's really not to invasive actually. Better than more banners right?

But you bring up a good point, if you want to have a clean interface for sharing information then I could setup an interface minus most of the ads and offer that interface in exchange for a small annual donation to offset the costs...

Where do I send the check and how soon could you get "IT" done?

Yup, I'd be for that too. This forum is such a huge value to me as it is, I'd be glad to contribute!

To me, I think the banners are less intrusive, perhaps because I'm so used to them & sub-con. ignore them. The type face color change & double under-line of the 'matched' key words seems to distract from reading the posts 'cleanly'. I suppose that's the point, but only time will tell.

Exclamation Pay to play?

That's a sure way to drive much of the membership over to the other free Airstream information sharing sites.
I believe it best to keep this site free for members and let advertisers pay the rent.
I've never found the ads and banners so intrusive that I couldn't harvest or share info here.
I'm all in favor of voluntary donations but I fear that a mandatory subscription fee would dramatically reduce the volume of info exchange.
