No problem! Glad you got it figured out!

I think I figured out what was causing it - I saw them again last night when using a different computer and turned off a few Chrome extensions.

Voila! Gone!

So I suspect it was an ad-based Chrome extension that was doing it on my end, and not advertising coming from this site!

Sorry about that!

Never, ever, EVER give up!

I've seen people mention this from time to time, but I think there's something you can do to stop it from happening (on your computer), because most people never see those. Let me know if it happens again.

The links seem to have disappeared on their own, overnight.

They were blue, with a double underline, and a smaller, different font than the surrounding text. If I see them again I will take a screenshot for you.

There is no toolbar at the bottom of my browser window. I use Google Chrome. Maybe it is something that Chrome doesn't support.

I don't see those same links when I look at a blog. Can you give me a specific example? Do you have that toolbar at the bottom with Quick links disabled? If not, try disabling that to see if the problem goes away.

The new automatic hyperlinks that lead to advertising are neither relevant nor helpful.

Is is really necessary to put them in Spark Page titles, for example? The formatting is very distracting, and the links they point to are not relevant to the tags, anyway.

I think the time may have come to take my blog posts elsewhere (wordpress.org).
