I had the same problem. In a response to a thread about that problem a respondent said to scroll down on the Viglink page and there is a "Opt Out" button. I don't know why I have to opt out of something I never signed up for but it works.

Hey guys,

This is a testing being done with Viglink which should be over in a couple days now. If it persists beyond this week, let us know - thanks!

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Cheers,
Natalie

Is the AutoGuide.com Group targeting those that run AD Blockers? When VigLink doesn't properly load on forums due to being blocked, there is a rewrite to outbound links using JavaScrip that redirects the link to a pay per click link?

Just today I found I was getting redirected when I tried to use a link to eBay on the topic "At a loss for words on this one".

I got this info from other users on other forums that are both using and not using Ad Blockers but are having problems with redirects by VigLink and from this: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/VigLink
