Internet Brands is a multi-million $$ corporation with it's tentacles going in all sorts of directions. Glitches like this only irritate users somewhat. It don't bother me much just thought I'd bring it up due to the fact one of their tentacles is a deal with Amazon for advertising, thus the the little Amazon icon included when you post a link to something on that site. Having the Amazon link bring up an ebay listing could be problematic for them.

If admin here don't care about it, it's no reason I would stop using the site. Just wanted to bring it to their attention.

All I'm saying is, if they let these things build up and never get resolved, then it could happen. I'm not leaving over those two things either.

We're never really sure why the links get inserted when they're not meant to for most users (logged in). We've always had issues with their plug-in....and sometimes it works as it should, and sometimes it doesn't, for whatever reason. There's also nothing we can really do on our end to "reset" the plugin, either. Apologies for the annoyance.

Seems to be random. I posted another Amazon link while using Chrome and it does not redirect to ebay. Strange indeed.
