And when making a post, as I just did.. 'message' in Post Icons box makes one occur as well.

Its indexing the words into its service and then broadcasting ads relevant..

It comes up with posts as well:

Scroll your cursor over 'message', 'communication' and 'service' in this post alone.
lol yeah that is messed, it changes the word into a link. Even in your post Baha.



for instance the circled word is converted to a link and when you mouse over it the black box appears...this ad needs to be disposed of!

I get this quite often, but I don't click, as you say it goes very quickly.
