Opting out

To stop receiving messages from DPL bot, use the ((bots)) template anywhere on your talk page. Here's the syntax:

((bots|deny=DPL bot))

This will only block DPL bot. No other bots will be blocked.

Another way to detect disambiguation links

Anomie's Link Classifier adds a tab next to "watch" that color-codes wikilinks by type (redirect, up for deletion, disambig, etc.) It's an easy way to review an article for dablinks after you've worked on it.
