Question UNDERLINED WORDS in posts with links to ads

Laela

Sidestepping the "lynch mob"
Dear Mods,

I've noticed lately there are embedded ads in posts and users' profiles, in which any of the words is underlined, hyperlinking to an ad. :look: Is there a way for members to deactivate this feature? I'm concerned about malware and viruses.

Here is an example of this: http://www.longhaircareforum.com/showthread.php?t=666555

The word "Join" at the right of N&W's profile is underlined and has a link; further down in the post, the words "the furnace" is underlined with a link.

Thanks for your attention to this concern...if you've already addressed it, my apologies. I don't venture to other areas of the site often

@Laela, I've noticed that too, though, of course, now, it's not doing it. It is very annoying.

Edited to add, it is doing again! This time, on the link you posted, with the words, "the furnace."
