Survey on Entering, then ads within text.

I was told I was a winner of one of a couple of items, one being a $500 gift card and the other, an IPad.

I opted out of both, then noted that several words within even my messages were links to advertisements. I also tried to delete my posts and it wouldn't let me.

What's going on???

The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
