Default Anyone else getting 'Viglink' ruining the links here?

Back on the site after a week away, and every eBay link I click on here takes me to some site called Viglink which lists reams of stuff almost related to the eBay link, but annoyingly, not the eBay link itself. I can copy and paste the link into a new window just fine, and it's not affecting Car & Classic links, just eBay. It's insanely annoying and it's only happening here.
Anyone else, or anyone know how to fix it?

Ha I can't remember, blundered around and found a disable option . Honestly i'm useless with computers so it can't be hard or i wouldn't have managed it. On the vivilink page there is a disable button somewhere . Sorry i can't be more precise

I sussed it, go towards the bottom of the page and to the left of where it gives you the option to carry on to ebay there's a little message that says something like 'want to know more about Viglink with a little question mark' click that and that takes you to a page where it gives you the option to disable it.

It does it on the mobile version too. It's incredibly annoying.

If you click the "continue to eBay" it then takes you to the American eBay.com not eBay.co.uk

I am reporting this. This was triggered by Ebay and viglink, we have been tracking this across the network as its only triggering for 10% of the links.

The only (simple) option for the end user to avoid it is to go to viglink's site and opt out.

The best option though is that the admin turns it off in the control panel rather than trying to monetize every single aspect of the site!
