Thanks for pointing that out, it was something called Infolinks which I did impede but came back.
I have another bug at the moment with the word censoring, can't get my head around it....as it does not always work, very annoying but I'll get it.

I almost always go online via my laptop, which has ad-blocker on it. If I use my useless phone, I've seen ads at the bottom of the page.
Pretty sure I could write you a good profanity-blocker if you get stuck. It's basically a search-and replace function, and presumably you have to feed it the words you want masked, and possibly specify if they have to be whole words or not (or maybe a white-list as well, so words like 'mishits' wouldn't get flagged). Seems like I wrote something like that, years ago.
I've got wild staring eyes, and I've got a strong urge to fly ... but I've got nowhere to fly to

I tell you what I do need though and that is a responsive 728x90 banner.
I tried to make one the other day at the library but their browsers don't automatically update so when you try and use anything that needs a flash player etc it just looks back at you and says, No!
I say responsive as it needs to adapt to mobiles. You will see the adverts on this forum do that.
I would ask my brother to do it as he is a graphic designer but he is in Vietnam so if you got the know how? I am restricted to just a smart phone and an iPad at the moment and Apple are really quite dictatoral about what you can and can't use. Personally I do prefer Microsoft as at least you do feel like you own the damn computer.
