    it's no spyware .. it's sponsored ads we are running on the site

    advertisers book certain words at intellitxt that become underlined links on the site

    there is no software installed or any other form of spyware. i know the links are somewhat annoying but they do pay a ton of money. otherwise i'd remove them.

    yeah otherwise i couldnt continue doing it now that i graduated. because i do need to make a living. however, considering the amount of time invested and the money i could make as full-time professional software developer it's not that much... but it's much more fun
