Exclamation Annoying Advertisement on Random Words

There is a Way to Bypass those annoying Advertisements that Blocks part of the Text on each post?

Well, that Random Word Advertising existed already prior to the Forum's recent Software change, but it was simplier, it displayed underlined words with a simple blue underline, it used to be only one underlined word per post and did not affected private messages. Each blue underlined word had this legend:
"Link added by Vlink"

That annoying advertising was completely gone with the New Forum's Software... for a couple of Weeks; then the Random Word Advertising came back... even Worse, now it not only underlines, but also highlights the affected words all in Green, takes more words per post and also it "attacks" the Private messages... now also those are "infected" with Underlined & Highlighted Green Words everywhere.

This time, the annoying ads are not placed by "Vlink" now they are placed by
"Vibrant intellitxt" as each one has embed a web link hiding under the letter "i" that sends you to This Website:

~►
What's IntelliTxt? - Vibrant

And according to the info there:
Quote:
"This ad was delivered to you by Vibrant Media in partnership with the website you were just visiting."
So that issue has Nothing to do with my Computer Software and / or Malware \ Viruses on my PC, I can assure you my PC is Clean; beside Avast I run Malwarebites permanently on Background... and I don't visit websites other than automotive Forums.

By the Way, that annoying advertising is Not Shown
/ Never shown on the many other Automotive forums I go daily, such like Subaru & Mercury Forums. see this Screen Caption as an example:


To the moderators, Very Kindly let me ask you a Question: Have you tried to surf the kia-forums website, without being logged in? ... Maybe in that way, it delivers the Ads to you...

Kind Regards.

Arrow Important Note!

Please keep in mind that the underlined words on my posts, are web links to further information on the underlined Subject, but those web links added by me, only works for logged-in users on this forum, otherwise you'll see other web links with propaganda and advertisments, automatically generated by this web forum's system.

Dear friend Jeff,

I mean that logged-in users at this Forum, will see my web links on the underlined words; but those users that are not part of the Forum, or Logged out users, will see web Links added by the VLink Company, not by me, and sure it will become my posts with underlined words, Confusing for non-logged users.

Kind Regards.
