What s going on?  We appear to have been sold out to big business.  I have just done a post, and certain words are in GREEN and double underlined, these are hyperlinks that when clicked on, lead you to advertisements.   We now have commercial breaks :o

I was just about to comment on that Martin.  The green lines are everywhere.

Its inline advertising but I dont think its settled down yet, as it seems to be underlining random words.

The idea is that a word like 'fridge' is underlined, then when you hover your mouse over that word, an advert for a store like Currys appears.

Oddly enough, when I looked at Fester's posts, the underlined words bring up adverts for Viagra Extra Strength?

Fridge, car, Cooker, holiday, flight, money, mortgage, loan, banking, slimming, breast reduction.  I just want to see how many of these words will be underlined and turn green.

Well, the Forum nowhere near covers its running costs, so perhaps the question is how big a bill I should send you? $thanx$

Err!  Not sure the advertising links are working at all well, the only word it turned green was "breast" and even then the two adverts it shows are for Bankruptcy and Government Debt Advise.  I may be missing something here, but where does Breast fit into those categories?  I am VERY confused. :'(
