Not sure if this is showing up for anyone else, but whenever I view the forums, when you move your mouse over random words, it shows a Bing search. Using the Board Index as an example, trip, travel, video games, iPod, consoles, and computers all give a Bing search when hovered over them.

Is there a reason for this, or is there a way to turn this off?

Edit: It also does this in my post.

It's in-line advertising, and no, because it's one of the ways we try to keep this site free for people like you, since people don't really want to pay to visit a site, and we have bills to pay in order to keep this site up.

^ I completely understand. I've just never seen this before on another site and was wondering if they were supposed to be there...and why they were on random words.
