Adblock won't allow affiliate links to open - how to stop?

I'm using adblocker plus, and it's blocking ALL of my affiliate links on my forum. 

Example :

To be fair, it does this on Youtube too when you enter links in the description of videos. 

Needless to say this is far from ideal. I note when you use wordpress the links still work, at least when you embed them in a button.  And yes, I have tested and confirmed this, and I am sure.

Example :

So is there any way around this??  It has the potential to kill monetisation on your sites.

Hey

I actually tried that...But it keeps re-adding it!  It must be a setting in the theme somewhere..

Steve,

go to ACP --> SYSTEM --> Settings --> Posting.

Now go to Links Tab.

Uncheck "Force posted links to open in new windows?" setting.

You the man dude! I thought it was related to opening in new window, but didn't know how to turn it off.  It's working now!

Great!
