Help - advert pirates question.

It appears that my posted words are being confiscated by google-ads.

Looks like any first post for a new thread is likewise mined by google for keywords, and double-underlined for mousover-popups, without our explicit intention.

Can DC please direct me to a FAQ regarding this practice.
I'm not overly annoyed by it, but I need to know...

Thanks

woe be to anyone who includes the unfortunate word 'mortgage' into their DC postings...

Thanks, Andy. Next Q, is there a way for me to delete this thread? I'm clearly a newbie, but I hope to become a respectably DC member.

Actually, chopsticks, there really is no need to delete this thread. It can be a "learning" tool for other new members. Thanks for bringing up your question.
