I didn't even know we had key word advertising. This added in with the last software update was it? Anyway, I count three so far. I only see them on the front page, but how pervasive is it, I wonder? Will ads start appearing in our posts (though I think we know the staff a little better than that - I hope)?

I dont think it's spyware since I see it too. The main problem I have with these ads is that they slow Firefox down when loading the page.

Firefox + adblock = no keyword advertising :)

Meh. If I click the "What's this?" then the page it tries to go to is blocked. Probably my über hosts file at work.

It's not spyware (unfortunately); I've seen them on other sites (AnandTech is really bad). Intellitxt seems to be the most common, but I've long since added *intellitxt* to my AdBlock rules.

We're doing a month-long trial with them to gauge their effectiveness and user response. The ads won't be appearing on most of the forum pages, including within threads themselves. Since the links show up in completely different colors, I don't see why people would be bothered by them, but if you click on the "what's this?" link, you'll see another link that will cause them to be disabled for you.
