Turns out that Dragon naturally speaking version 12, is adding extra code to entries if you are using firefox. This code is hidden inside of div tags. So users don't know they are inserting it. It is asking visitors to my site (who are also using firefox) to install a plugin. This plugin doesn't exist.

In otherwords, if you go to the site and use firefox you will be asked to install a plugin. If you do it, none will be found.

EVERY SINGLE TIME YOU GO TO THE PAGE!

Just a big waste of time and resources.

As anybody can enter things into the site (similar to slashdot) anybody using dragon dictate 12 will be filling my site with this pointless code.

I view this as a virus. It infects computers in a hidden way, is made by a fairly large company, on purpose, with I assume, the idea of releasing their plugin to promote their software.

Am I overreacting?"
