    Anyone ever noticed that?

    This is unfortunately an enormously widespread scam on the net these days and in the future, the "winning" search engine will be the one that eliminates these link and content farms from their searches the fastest.

    It's not just seven forums being copied/linked too of course, it's hundreds of sites.

    One slightly different case in particular are the Linux man pages. There must be 150,000 sites out there with a copy of the man ages and maybe 3 of them are reasonable and the rest are there to spam you so hard it'll knock your browser into last week

Ad-Aware worked fine on Win 8, but they kept bugging me to buy the paid edition. I just found out that it had turned off Windows Defender without informing me, and it would not allow me to turn Defender back on. I have deleted Ad-Aware and restored Defender.
