I find them annoying, distracting and really don't like them at all. I also fail to see how they add any increase in functionally over the "auto-hyperlinking" that is already applied to the text in forum postings?
Is there anybody out there that likes these or think they are a good idea? Or is this just another case of TA "fixing" something that wasn't broken, adding a feature that is actually a negative, and/ or . . . .
