Will show the following text (visible only while editing):

<!--===========================({{NoMoreLinks}})===============================
    | DO NOT ADD MORE LINKS TO THIS ARTICLE. WIKIPEDIA IS NOT A COLLECTION OF |
    | LINKS. If you think that your link might be useful, do not add it here, |

    | to the appropriate category at the Open Directory Project (www.dmoz.org)|
    | and link back to that category using the {{dmoz}} template.             |
    |                                                                         |

PurposeEdit

The purpose of this template is to discourage spammers and inexperienced Wikipedians from adding links normally to be avoided. This template does not in any way modify the Wikipedia:External links guideline and does not apply to "What should be linked to" links. This template makes it easier to catch further linkspam added to articles with this template as anonymous users tend to ignore it and blatantly add their links (which now can be and should be treated as spam).

DMOZEdit

DMOZ is our friend in spam cleanup, not just officially sanctioned but encouraged by the Wikipedia:External links guideline. You can go into a spammed wikipedia article, delete all the spam links and then tell everyone "Take it to DMOZ" and add a DMOZ link. This approach reduces the hassles of arguing over a lot of marginal or even spam links one by one.

Template popularityEdit

This template is a substituted template so the "What links here" option does not reflect the template's true popularity. Once a template is substituted, the result is no longer linked to the template, making it difficult to find all pages displaying that text (though categories can sometimes relieve this).
