    What's with the green and underlining?

    Okay, maybe it's just me, but all of a sudden, I'm noticing that certain words are being double underlined and are posted in green on my posts, even when I've done nothing to make it that way.

    I mean, even Contest is underlined and in green where it says "contest staff" under luvs name....

    What gives? And is this a feature we can turn off? Because I don't want the computer automatically emphasizing certain words that I didn't pick when I write my posts.....

    Can you point to a specific post that I can look at? Is it only happening your posts?
    Oh Grigor. You silly man.

    I've had it happen before on other/all sites. It's a kind of adware/virus deal.

    Sorry .
    It's hard out here for a Zuz.

    I thought it might be adware or something. Like those stupid things that look like links but when you put your cursor over them an ad pops up.

    I hate that crap.

    It appears as if you all need to stop downloading porn.

    I've never seen this. But yes, that is it exactly as one of the posters said...it looks like certain words appear as "links".

    Is this...the site or is this MY computer?

    Download Ad-Aware. It's a free programme and easy enough to use.
    Also Spybot works well in tandem with it.
    Should get rid of most things.

    I could not work on my computer as my work applications were looking for it in another area so IT used spybot to search and destroy the cause of it. Now, I will be able to resume in the morning.
