I noticed that most of the current posts have certain words converted to URL Links, usually linked to Amazon.
So if for instance you type the word "mirror" in a post and check back later, "VigLink" has created a link to a mirror product page somewhere off site.
Is this something that has been OK'd by xrv.org.uk ? Or is it something that is happening outside the control of this forum?

I know that my ad and script blockers go into overdrive when I come on here now. End up with lots of the frames showing the HTML code for a blocked link

Viglink is standard affiliate monetisation service. It earns commission for any eBay or Amazon links that are visited, as eBay or Amazon will pay the site for people that follow links and buy from then. It's one of the standard ways that you earn money on a large traffic site like this.
It normally sits harmlessly in the background not sure why you're seeing it's more prevalent.
