    Kontera Content Sensitive Links - The Double Underlined Blue Links

    Yes... the double blue underlined links are ads. Those links are there to help support the site. If you do no like the links, just don't roll over them. We understand that you may not like the feature but we feel that if you do not want to see the links, it is fairly simple to avoid them. Remember, nobody is forcing you to put your mouse over them.

    They are not detrimental to your computer in anyway.

    For more information about the program and how to customize it (or disable it), find a Kontera Content Link and then click on the question mark located in the top right of the advertisement box. From there you can read about the program and customize the experience (at the bottom of the page).
    Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by hundreds of engineers that get paid thousands of dollars for something you bought at Pep Boys because your buddy who doesn't have a job told you it was 'better'?!?

    Link Ads in threads?

    How come I am seeing some words turn into links for advertisements. They look like they link to another thread, but if you click they just goto an ad.

    I don't know, they're pretty annoying to me.

    I only clicked one, to verify it was an ad.

    The ads suck but with a little reading comprehension they are easily disabled. If you are smart you can figure it out fairly quickly. My ads are gone

    It's only a matter of time before the crazy people take over...

    What was the one that was here a couple years ago? At least that one you had the opportunity to disable, which was nice for us.

    These new ones are distracting since they're the same color as the legitimate links.

    Seems like the pages are loading slower now.

    You guess right about not liking it. This is very intrusive, having my text changed into an ad.

    Of course I will deal with it because I need to be here, but it's the nastiest form of invasive advertising I think I've ever seen.

    that said, thanks for the site.

    From there you can read about the program and customize the experience.
    Does that include turning it off?

    Quick test to see if this new feature can be harnessed for the greater good:

    Nudes -- late teens to early 30s
    get-rich-quick
    Web Coupons
    Porn Site Passwords

    ....

    ....

    Damn! Doesn't work!

    lol. I guess I either don't have very good reading comprehension, or I'm not fairly smart.

    Both?

    I guess I'll read further next time.

    with the activity on this site i would imagine any profit, if there is any, is negligible
