Unneccessary Connections Linking

I have found many cases (the Movie Connections page for The Godfather and for Dancing With the Stars are particular offenders) of links for names and even for the title itself being included in the explanations of the connections.   Is there a way to convince people not to do this?  Thank you.

I'm not sure the name links are a problem, but these guidelines do in general frown upon "self-referential" title links and repeated links:

Hi Jason -

As Peter mentioned above and linked to the submission guide, we do allow linking of names and titles in the comments for connections.  However, if you encounter items where a name or title is linked more than once, you are welcome to submit a data correction for that item through our online Update form and request the removal of the repeat links.  Cheers!
