I just wrote something about tyres here and it turned my word 'e b a y' into a LINK!?!

WTF? I didn't do that! Is this going to turn into one of those forums where every other word is a link to some shite you never wanted to advertise look at in the first place?

What is going on??????? shock

Not sure this is working as intended for MNHQ - has anyone hovered over bigfat's coke hyperlink? Alas, it is not to the drinks company wink

Have just done the hover over the coke thing shock

HQ this is crap - not even linking to 'official' sites - just random, inappropriate shite - you can't really endorse this???? confused

Hi all,
There's another thread which I posted on here discussing this.

Clearly you're not happy! And there's a problem with it, if folks think it's malware so we'll take it off for now and have a re-think about it.

Thanks for all the input.

That's great Justine.

I admire your wish to make money out of the site (and letting us use it for free) and I know it probably seems to you that we whinge at every little change, but this obviously was a bigger matter than you first recognised, so I for one really appreciate the fact that you are looking at it.

Cheers Justine! You DA BOM!

::really can't pull off things like that and should stick to English::

Great news, just hope the re-think is permanent!

Thank you.

Really though what were you thinking

I appreciate the need to generate income. Keep the links but make them a different colour to those that posters add on purpose.
