Banner ads in photos

About a 2 weeks ago, I started getting banner ads on the bottom of all the pics the guys and gals are posting. Is this a new thing from the forum or am I lucky enough to be the new owner of a adware bug?

Anybody else have this issue?

I've noticed the same thing while logged in, but it's not every single time. If I see it again, I'll post a screenshot here.

I've seen them, mostly they've been "Jeep" ads.

Here's an example of the ads. this pic came from a reply post from Strat on a seat height question.

Yup, thats what they look like when ads appear on photos. Figured it was just another new way to generate revenue. I was suprised that it culd be done and suspect we will see it everywhere now.
Will pay more attention, which other sites, etc.

Hmm, I've already got that disabled in my profile, but I've still seen the occasional banner ad. I wonder if they're treating that more as a "suggestion".
