The Kontera system we use looks for keywords in posts and turns them into hover-over adverts like the one you saw. Anything that is currently a link won't be affected.

It should only happen to users who are not logged in - I must make a point of mentioning this on the site somewhere!!

Please do not send me support requests via PM.
