Four new icons?

Yesterday the new thing was permalink. Today there a 4 little pictures at the bottom of the post box that display the following text when you put the cursor over them:
  1. Digg this post!
  2. Add Post to del.icio.us
  3. Bookmark Post in Technorati
  4. Furl this Post!
What is any or all of that?

I don't know, I don't see it, but...

Another board I go to, I did see those at. The webmaster at that board had just changed it around a bit the day before.

I don't know what, if anything, this means but I see them in firefox and Internet Explorer. They are just to the right of "Report post."

OK, these are new to me too so I could be out to lunch on this. I THINK they are to post links to DC posts on other sites. The one site Digg it I think is sort of newsy? Its supposed to increase traffic here and inspire more members.

I can see the 4 new icons and I don't know how they got there. I rather like them - the colors are pretty.

I noticed them too. If the site admin (Alix) and moderators aren't familiar with them then I'm a tad concerned. I don't necessarily want my posts linked to other sites. I've run into some "cyber stalkers" who call up my posts and put them on other forums where they don't belong. I was on a newsgroup about pet loss, a grief forum, and someone actually quoted my posts and made fun of me over my grieving for the loss of my dog of 18 years. I don't want to see that sort of thing happen from things I've posted here.

Can you find out who is doing this and get them to stop?

Nothing to be concerned about, and you don't have to use them.

You can learn more about linkbacks HERE

Like MJ said, I wouldn't be too concerned, but be aware that this is a public forum and what you type here is visable to and searchable by anyone with Internet access. Try entering FraidKnot Fraidy into a google search box to prove it. Your posts that turn up are there because that's the way the world wide web works, with or without those four new icons.

I must admit that I was very happy when I googled my 'name' and none of my posts came up....just bad cooking sites or recipes.
