Description

Two links to hangingon.org seem to be parasites at http://docs.jquery.com/How_jQuery_Works#Callback_and_Functions

(it is really not easy to contact the JQuery team for that : no contact page, no e-mail. Needed to create a Trac account)

I don't see any problematic links when I view the source. You might want to check with a second or third browser to see if perhaps it's due to a spammy toolbar.

Yes, the links were removed. ... but they came again at the same URL.

This time I offer you a screenshot, checked on two different browsers.

It doesn't have anything to do with trust; I simply don't see any spam links on my system. I have attached the html of the page and a screen shot corresponding to the same area you show. So, what is the difference between our two setups? I have Firefox 3.6 on Windows 7 x64, the only browser plugin present is Firebug.

I would be interested to see if the spam links are being sent down by the wiki or added on the client side; a tool like Fiddler or Wireshark can show what is actually going over the wire.

The reason I close these tickets is so that when you reopen them I see the new activity on the timeline. Otherwise your ticket is likely to be lost.
