In the "May I promote here?" section of the FAQ there is an omission of some word;

We also offer [special discounts? rates?] for open source projects and non-profit organizations.

What is it that StackExchange is offering?

I thought this was a typographical error, looks like a bug. We are running IE 7.0(.5730.13) in XP (SP3). What is odd is that my browser is rendering the "contact our sales team" link immediately preceding the link that isn't displaying correctly.

  • Cannot reproduce on FF8.0.1 (OS X 10.6.8).

Given the nature of the link text - "free community promotion ads" - and the fact that it selectively applied to that link and not the preceding one, my money is on this being the effect of some ad-blocker or malware blocker, not a bug in IE proper.
