I havent clicked on any of them but I noticed this happened last week when I mentioned Asda. Then today in the Asda car parking thread it has happened again, and with Sainsburys too.

WTF?

It's a new thing. It is annoying.

Everything. It is REALLY annoying, only on the desktop site though I think.
The thread about the two shops beginning with A, someone's description of which well known purple hotel chain they stayed in.

It's like someone SHOUTED the brand name when it came up.

It is really bloody annoying.

I know advertising keeps the site going blah blah but keep it out of my posts!

You have to write them slightly wrongly, like this :S ainsburys or Tes co's
Then the linky spies don't find them.
