    Some of you may have noticed that certain words in your posts were automatically linked to an outside web site. If you were to hover your mouse pointer over the link, you'd see "Link added by VigLink".

    This advertising service was an experiment I implemented some time ago, and I did not like it. I found the links annoying, and so I disabled them.... or so I thought.

    This morning I realized that the VigLink service was not properly disabled, and the links were still being added to posts. I have now corrected that, and you will no longer see these intrusive links in your posts.

    Sorry for any inconvenience, and Happy New Year!
