spam blacklist should replace blacklisted links with a safe special page
Open, LowPublic

Description

Author: cbm.wikipedia

Description:
If a spam blacklisted link is already included in a page, the spam filter should replace it with a link to a safe special page. The special page would say, "This link has been disabled." and have a link to return to the referring article. This would mean that links already in the saved page (or links that appear because of other bugs in the spam filter) are less of a threat.
