What's up with the links that are attached to seemingly random words that link to advertisements? When you hover over them, it says "Powered Text-Enhance" and shows an ad. There's one in my answer here on the word "below" at the end of the first bullet-point which I certainly did not put there myself. I've found others scattered among other recent questions and answers.

  • where do you see it? – Shmuel Brin Jan 13 '12 at 2:48
  • @ShmuelBrill, I just added a link, but realized that the ad is not there anymore. Nor in other places that I've seen it and just checked again. It must be some strange thing on the desktop computer that I was using before. (Now I'm using my laptop.) Strange. – jake Jan 13 '12 at 3:01

    Sounds like it may have been adware on said computer. – Isaac Moses Jan 13 '12 at 3:08

    It's a browser plugin. Remove it! – avi Jan 13 '12 at 13:09
