I am starting to notice fancy link within users' posts. Accompanied with fancy icons. Has new way of advertising been introduced or am I to drunk?

Why do posters that claim to have me blocked keep sending me pms and responding to my posts? That makes no sense.

Interesting.  I don't have that issue, and I use a PC and a Mac.

It's a spam injection plugin. Go to your list of plugins and see which of them doesn't belong there, write down the name, go to control panel and delete it.

Yeah, there are many types of plugins that will do that.  Programs like Skype will highlight any phone number and give you a skype dial option.  Other plugins/spyware/maleware will do this to send your link clicking to "appropriate" advertisers to dump you full of spam.

Of course if you are by chance using linux, it most likely was a browser plugin.
