VisualEditor should not encourage links of little relevance (e.g. disambiguation pages, already used links, etc..)
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

  1. Open an article such as

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Convex_function?veaction=edit

  1. Click in a non-linked word "function"
  2. Click in the link button (CTRL+K)

The list of matching pages will include the disambiguation page "[[Function]]", which should actually be avoided.

Similarly, if a paragraph already has a link to [[Function]], then it should not appear in a second atempt to add the same link (or there should be some visual indication that this kind of link is not desirable - e.g. by having a section in the dropdown menu labeled "Already used links...")
