Walt, that is a script, as is the advertising banner at the top of the page. Find yourself a script blocker, such as NoScripts and you won't be pestered by that nasty hyper-link ever again. This particular blocker is a FireFox extension, I believe. Nice thing is, it works on ALL websites, so anywhere you go with annoying script generate buttons and ads are now under your control.

Now all we need is a way to deal with the auto-drop down menus that block the navigation buttons for the forum.
