    My feelings exactly. While testing what does and doesn't trigger the ads, I actually clicked on one of my Adwords ads and yep - GR was there plastering competitor's sites on top of mine!

    Let me know if anything develops on this. I have been busy with tax season so I have not had the opportunity to continue any research on the matter.

    Hm-mm; did you miss the part about Google Related being an equal opportunity hijacker?

    Update - I noticed the Google Related on one of my sites again. It seemed intermittent. A little more research told me I needed to move this code to the bottom of the page, just before the closing body tag. Here's the code again"
    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    var cnt = 0;
    var interval = 0;
    var f = function () {
    var css = {cssText:'display:none !important; visibility: hidden !important'};
    var gr = $('iframe[src^="http://www.gstatic.com/webgps/grelated"]');
    gr.css(css).prev('div').css(css);
    if (++cnt > 5 || gr.length) clearInterval(interval);
    };
    f();
    $(function () {
    interval = setInterval(f, 500);
    });
    </script>

    There's certainly a lot of very bizarre posts around here. I see it all the time on all sorts of threads. It's like they're materializing from some alternate/parallel reality or dimension and things are pretty similar, but just "not quite right". So I guess in this case, he was "whisked away" back to the dimension of origin via the quantum mirror.

    That was a copy/paste of the posts of another.

    He ran up at least 16 junk posts for count, and is now banned.
