I am seeing these ads in many messages on these forums, not just my own ? Is it client-side software that has hooked into my browser (Firefox 3.6.`16) ? If it is server-side software, others would be seeing them also.
Also, would you happen to have some sort of toolbar in FF? I would almost be positive it's something in ur browser, or an addon perhaps (aside from a glitch of some sort in the forum with you being logged in but still seeing the ads when you aren't supposed to be.)
