Whoa! I've never seen a website do that before - it's kind of neat! – Jared Harley Oct 28 '09 at 18:55
Very interesting. Doesn't seem to happen in Firefox 3.5.4 though. – Travis Oct 28 '09 at 19:05
Can't see it either in FF or IE8. – Nifle Oct 28 '09 at 20:20
I just tried on Opera10 and i didnt see any extra text in the copy paste – Andrew Keith Oct 30 '09 at 0:40
Wow that's scary, works in Chrome and IE8 though fails randomly/initially in IE - the page does some slight loading whenever I hit ctrl+c or context menu copy... and it does insert the link in the clipboard... – Oskar Duveborn Oct 30 '09 at 1:16

In Firefox, you could install the extension NoScript. I'm sure you could also create a Greasemonkey script to block their script, but I have no experience with that.
