    Why are there specific words in green boldface type? After the mouse goes over the word(s) a popup comes up in that spot. Usually for pricegrabber or some other company. Sometimes the forum does this and sometimes it doesnt. Is there a way to turn this off?

    No, it's a form of advertising :)

    I don't really notice them anymore lol

    I'd like to get rid of them myself. I can't stand it when I move the mouse and go to click a link and accidentally click the advertisement. It's kinda irritating.

    It's simply word advertisements. And nothing else.
