How do I turn off the automatic links that are made out of some keywords like "video", etc... in posts that I am reading?
I had a look in the user cp but I don't see any option to turn them off.
+1. i suggested a on/off button in the forum suggestions, but no one really paid attention to that...

The wiki sucks anyway and now it made a wiki link out of the MP3Car text.
And if this post auto-merges with my last I will be really f ucking p issed.

The auto links are worse than useless, they highlight apparently random words and link to subjects that have no correlation to the topic being discussed. As an example, I am testing the functionality now. Testing is linked to something totally unrelated.
Sometimes people turn words into links when they're linking to outside sites.
It is now harder to differentiate between a wiki link and a link that poster created.
I still maintain that while I don't want to see those links in other people's posts, I also don't want my posts auto-edited to include links. As the author of my own posts, I don't want them edited.
i still agree with you. while some might really enjoy seeing random links in posts to unrelated topics, i sure don't..
If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say it has to do with funding for the website and is one of the reasons this site remains free to it's users... sadly, this means any financial benefit from these autolinks would be gone if this was turned off and could affect the website itself
