I've got nasty green lines under some words on GZ. When I hover over the word I get a (usually) irrelevent advert.

Is it my computer?

Is it the site?

How do I get rid of it?

I ran an AVG and Spybot scan this morning already..

It's the site's ads - nothing wrong with your computer :)

It is a form of advertising we are testing. If you are logged in you shouldn't see it. Same if you are in New Zealand. Since some IP addresses resolve as Australia you probably are seeing this. I've extended the filter to Australia now.

Ah - so we weren't meant to see them?

I haven't noticed them much as I've got Adblock Smile

If you are in New Zealand, Australia - or logged in - then you won't see those ads.

I always wanted to go to Australia...never realised I was already there.

I'm pretty sure I was logged in - but they've gone now so that's good.

Cheers mate.

I'm feeling a bit guilty now that I've cut off your Oz advertising

I was seeing them while logged out - but then my Xnet connection always seems to fool geo-IP lookups into thinking I'm in Aus for some reason.
