Check spam blacklist when a link is added, not just when the page is saved
Open, LowPublic

Description

This is the next step beyond T52826: VisualEditor: Add support for spam blacklist errors in save dialog.

Current process: Spend a long time working on a page. Save and get an error about a blacklisted URL, which you then have to find (not easy, as the URL is almost never visible in plain text) and remove before you can save it.

Desired process: As soon as you link or cite something, VisualEditor tells you that it's on the spam blacklist, and refuses to insert it (perhaps automatically converting it to plain text, so you could see "www.spam.com/link/stuff/index.html").
