another sales pitch?

A couple of minutes ago, on the online list, the user name manila was double underlined, and when i hovered over it, it was some kind of ad for traveling to manila...? did anyone else notice this? julie

I see them too - but it just shows a link to their GuG profile now. I think what you saw might have something to do with your browser or ad placement (whatever those affiliate programs are called).

As an example, in Yahoo mail, if a sender mentions the city Manila or even manila envelopes in an email, sometimes when you hover over the word, it will show a link to various searches for it. 

Just a thought, maybe at that moment you saw their username it wasn't fully recognized as a logged in user yet, so it was not yet a link - but treated as a keyword.

Those should only be visible to non-members, or members that are not signed in.. are you sure you were logged-in to the site when that happened?

 

..There's nothing you can do that can't be done...

I'm not sure what was happening, but...my user name was right under manila. but on my next forum choice, i was required to log on. so i might have been using 2 open windows? could that have been what was happening?  julie
