Skype converting dates to phone numbers...

I just installed Skype but can't use it yet until my mic and webcam arrive from Amazon. Since installing it however, I have noticed a slight problem. It converts any telephone numbers on the web to direct dialing links, but on certain sites it does the same with the date!
On another forum I went to it converted every post made today into a telephone number with the icons.
Any way to stop this? Here's a screen shot: click here

Thanks for the response. I'll look into it when I have time.

I don't think I have the extras installed, as my CPU monitor doesn't show any increase in activity at all. I've been surfing around a bit and it doesn't seem to happen anywhere else apart from that forum, which I rarely use now anyway(Web User). Just seems weird!
