I see there are Ad's here now?

Is there any way to exclude them?

I don't see any ads, neither in Explorer nor in Firefox.

Maybe you're seeing something I don't :)

Where do you see the ads?

I also don't see any ads.

I'm guessing it's due to having other tabs/windows opened and popups came from those.

In my post skydiving the word accident is highlighted and has one of those mouseover ad's

My computer is running slow, perhaps I have some ad thing on it...

The words accident and computer are highlighted in the post above.

do you want me to post a screen dump?

And there is a delay when I post that puts up a message:

"This forum requires that you wait 30 seconds between posts. Please try again in 9 seconds"

Worth checking IMO, and maybe clean up the computer, use some anti-adware program, reboot, etc... Are you seeing ads with other websites as well?

Unless you have clicked twice on Reply, there might be a bug with this double post thing.
Hopefully, it will be dealt with before/when the forum platform is upgraded (http://forum.alchemyforums.com/showthread.php?3556-Upgrade-2013).

This is apparently what often happens when you have malicious text enhancing ad-ware on your computer.

Check out THIS LINK (http://www.im-infected.com/popups/text-enhance-pop-up.html) for more info on Text Enhancing Ad-Ware.
I'm guessing it is the cause of the highlights you're seeing.
THIS OTHER LINK (http://botcrawl.com/how-to-remove-text-enhance/) may also help.

Glad to hear! So it wasn't an AF issue after all...

I hope and wish that Your Leg (http://forum.alchemyforums.com/showthread.php?3601-SkyDiving) will heal almost as fast as your computer!
