    So apparently viglink links are being inserted into user-posted links.

    Here's an example.

    The linking only happens when the link is clicked or right-clicked, where it temporarily changes from the original URL to the viglink one. At all other times it appears to be normal. It only seems to pop up on some threads, and for me it's only happening in Chrome when I have adblock off. Judging from the console output (the huge spam only occuring on pages with viglinks inserted) I guessed it was an ad, and upon enabling adblock temporarily it stopped happening.

    I'm not the only person seeing this, it seems.

    That post was also a copied viglink before a mod corrected it.

    Is this something the ads are doing, or is it something the site is doing? It's kind of hard to tell, since "view source" displays the source before any javascript modifications.
