1 product name, 3 words --> 3 misleading autolinks

It would help if the styling were a bit less obtrusive. Links made on purpose get less visual attraction. So the balance is tilted to the wrong side.

Example: last week I read an article that George Martin slept in a cupboard in the Abbey Road studios.

What I do not understand is that "products mentioned" is always nothing despite autolinks finding some (false positives)

We are the KVR collective. Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated. Image

Hope the companies that are being mislabeled are not potential or current advertisers on KVR, that would be embarrassing.

Well, whatever, this is a site that monetizes via advertising...
I will say this: that shit doesn't work on me, the psychological effect here is 'avoid like plague' as it's just gross
