stew spam links in thread

Post by cowtown » Mon Mar 12, 2018 9:08 pm

I’ve noticed a few posts today where a city or town is hyperlinked to Trip Advisor website, if you hover over the link it says linked by viglink or something

Are we infected, whats the deal with this?

Fluffermunky has finally figured out a way to monetize the Stew. Soon he will be able to afford $500 diaper bags. He's probably had his eyes on Roo Goo's $300 toaster...

I just typed 'New Orleans' in the Andrew Jackson thread. The stew hyperlinked it so I changed it to 'NO'.

It's probably code from Tapatalk, this started happening when Mutha's fixed it. Along with popups telling me to install it on my phone.

Nothings free, especially not these days.
