GoingBatty added a comment to T112382: Research new rules for Underlinked-tagging.

In T193836 AWB over-tagging stubs with Underlinked template, @kaldari indicated that it appeared that the issue was resolved in 2018.
However, AWB tagged the [[Aydan Hojjatova]] stub with {{underlinked}} in January 2021.
At [[User talk:GoingBatty#Underlinked tag]], user Rogermx stated "My objection is to giving any bot the power to add an Underlinked tag to a stub based on some algorithm. Many stubs simply do not have more terms that fit the Wikipedia standard for linking. A bot has no way of understanding that. Wikipedia used to have a 20,000 underlinked article backlog. It was down to about 2400 a few days ago thanks to the work of many people, now it is close to 4,000 again. My guess is that about 30 to 40 percent of these articles have been tagged inaccurately by a bot."
