Multiple links from that very article to the same page are removed; only the first of these links stays

Magnus, I don't think I like this. In longer articles, it can be very helpful to have a second link later on, so the reader doesn't have to go scurrying back up the page until she finds the first one. And, of course, this could hurt talk pages something fierce! Brion VIBBER, Monday, April 8, 2002
You're right. I'll take it out tonight. Actually, the reason I put this in was one of 24's articles, where s/he was linking to the same article 3 or 4 times, within the first few paragraphs, each time with a different link title. --Magnus Manske, Tuesday, April 9, 2002

I second that - it sounds like a very useful feature. Nanobug 21:06, 19 Sep 2003 (UTC)
