    just noticed this this morning for the first time ever. Obviously it's annoying and makes me wonder about some sort of "virus" (sorry not very tech savvy). It's not happening that I can easily tell on other sites I have open. And I'm using safari, I know lots of people think it sucks but I've had zero problems to this point especially with this site.

    Any thoughts?

    They're popping up on my laptop as well so not just mobile.

    Edit: holy shit. Every other word is popping up underlined in green because of this infolinks shit. This is bad.

    They weren't there at 3:30 this morning.

    But they are now. Annoying as fuck.

    Looks like Trady downloaded too much porn using the TalkBeer servers again

    Why does Arbitrator get his own personal ad link?

    Does this have something to do with the points system?

    This is all because of TMTOTB, isn't it?

    BA never had ads, it might be the North Korea of beer, but they respected us enough to not have ads. :p

    I just used the adblock plus plugin for chrome which got rid of the ads, but also got rid of the amazon banner which I like to use
