I posted something on the Forum just a moment ago, and noticed my signature was highlighted in the phrase "Buckle my shoe!" Never noticed it before. When I moved the mouse over it, an ad popped up about shoes! So, do I have to come up with a new one altogether? I like the one I have....any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Me too: One, two, buckle my shoe. Or is there something else to it?

It's some kind of invasive advertising. Don't know how it works or how to kill it but I've seen it before. Seems to scan for relevant keywords on a page, any page, and do some kind of hyperlink to another sales site.

It seems to be gone now so I'm guessing that anti-spam measures have been taken, either automatically or manually by Mikey. It's probably still a good idea to report any such strangeness though.

Just to be on the safe side, do a virus scan...
