Author Posts October 22, 2012 at 2:43 pm #1049481 smylarMember Unauthorized vendors are linking ads to my blogs, and I have paid for the upgrade. Please remove them and/or remove my upgrade if that will not take care of these unauthorized linkings. Thank you!

Examples from the latest post are linked to words like: “back problems” and “applying” and “student” Thank you!

Can you please try another browser, like Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox, and see if those links are still there? Note that we never mess with your content – our ads are clearly marked as such.
