+=head3 Disabling Ticket Linking
+When an article is included in a ticket's comment or response, the article
+is automatically added as a link to the ticket. This means that the article
+will be listed under the Links portlet on the Ticket Display page, and also
+on the Article display page. Having these links listed can be very useful
+and is RT's default behavior. However, some instances of RT use articles
+heavily, and having a large list of ticket links on the Ticket or Article
+display page, may not be ideal. To make this feature of RT more flexible,
+there is an option to disable ticket linking by class. This can be done by
+visiting the Modify Classes page and unchecking the "Link article to ticket"
+option under "When inserting articles in this class into emails". Note, that
+disabling this feature will only affect future comments/replies on tickets.
+Existing links to articles in the class will remain linked.
