Is this normal for the site, or do I have some sort of malware?

When reading the forum, for instance this thread, when I hover a link to newegg or such, the status bar shows the proper link like:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

But when I click on it, or right click on it and save link address, it is this:
http://www.anrdoezrs.net/click-3463938-10521304?URL=htt...

What is anrdoezrs.net? Why is this link voodoo happening?

I just ran kaspersky is, prevx, malwarebytes, etc and no infections.

No it's not normal. I try and open the newegg link without problems.

Try in safe mode on your rig.

This is NOT your fault. It is this damn website. I was told it was fixed....

I too had this problem until I disabled most of the scripts via NoScript.

On another note, my post count keeps going up but not my points. Is there some kind of delay I never noticed before? Or is Tom's having issues?

I don't know for sure. But it seems that since they've rolled out this new ranking structure, there have been a lot of bugs with it. I think it's a process of working each one out. I get the impression that there is a lot of customized software involved.
