Today's Spam

Hi EP!

Today, I find every story (and many comments) include a word that is highlighted (blue) and underlined - which is (as you would guess) a link.

It sends you to a website that asks you to interact by completing a survey - or at least the one I opened did. Not sure if they all open the same page . . . 

Anyway, for me this is a NEW form of Spam.    I thought I'd bring it to your attention as I cannot imagine it has been authorised by EP.

Thanks for dealing with it!

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. This is the first report we've received, would you please provide and example either by sending us a link or a screenshot of the page? It can be sent to

Arsineh, simply open any story - including this one, and see the links in blue, underlined. If your editor does not allow that, simply join EP as a casual user and you will see it immediately. In this story the under.lined words are "word" and "survey" - ironic, huh??

Thanks EIT. Did this a few days ago - but not since these appeared. . . I'll give it a try.
