I've noticed if you use certain words like "smoking", "the list" and others after you post it will link to other web sites. Whats going on there? Is it spam or advertising revenue?

I see that sometimes but not always

Might be some of that "behind the scenes" stuff Kevin talks about

Firefox:

I've opened up links to forum posts up in a new tab and ended up getting redirected to youtube briefly before it corrects itself.
Here and at a different computer at work.
Both Friday and today (Sat).

Check your web browser for extensions that may have been added without your knowledge.
That happened to me once last year when I installed a new program on my computer. It also added a browser extension that put links everywhere.

Most likely this issue is on your end. You likely have been infected with a Trojan.
I recommend:
- Spybot

- Malwarebytes Anti Malware

- Stopzilla
