Highlighted words are not links


Why are so many words highlighted in blue and underlined indicating they're a link when they aren't?

Sorry to say it is an advertising gimmick, I make sure I don't roll over them.

Yow those things are a huge aggravation (PITA). I think most people have no interest and if you accidently cross over one of them you get the ad-link pop-up, whether you want it or not. Totally unnecessary.

Unfortunately most of these slip through on a tablet. I wish the site administration would get rid of these annoying popup and other recent changes, especially the Kontere popup.
