Auto-link glitches

This is a slick feature, but there are some places with generic names that need to be excluded.

          Thanks for this feedback, we're aware of the problem and working on a fix. It's very helpful if you can continue to point out the ones that are linking in error so we can catch all of the various cases.

              This had been turned off, but now El Camino Real restaurant is autolinked to any mention of the street that runs most of the length of California.

                I went into the record for El Camino Real and turned off auto-linking for it, as well as removing the autolink from a couple of recent threads.
