There are squirrels embedded in the forum attaching links to keywords in unsuspecting members posts.

If you havent noticed it, check out how many sneaky links to amazon there are in this thread:

http://dnbforum.com/showthread.php/132709-Top-5-favourite-albums-ever

notice the occasional blue text?

please make it stop.

kthnxbai.
its skimlinks, adds links to ebay and amazon for popular things and means the forum gets a bit of money

if it annoys you that much get Adblock Plus (for firefox, chrome, opera but not Internet Explorer)

A couple of forums ive been members of in the past have had a VIP kind of thing. Donate (or pay like £2 a month) and you get access to more/special sections of the forum, special coloured name to show your a helpful bastard etc.

Might be worth looking into.
