Words turned into product links doesn't show up for me when I'm signed in - but that isn't my point. Our words on this community forum are being turned into links to advertise products. Anyone seeing those links is an issue. I don't agree to my words being turned into product advertisement.
The ads = one thing. This appropriation of our words to advertise products is something entirely different!
I was actually not even aware of this, guess because I'm always logged in when I'm on.
I do agree this is big turn-off for potential new user; you know what they say 'first impressions count'
