Prevent self-referential linkify links in posts

Is there a way to do the opposite, i.e. somehow disable or tell it to ignore watch words while composing a post?

The issues I’m seeing is this:

  1. I’ve setup watched words to link specific words to a specific topic (e.g. upload files)
  2. When I edit the post in that topic, those same words (i.e. upload files) are used in that post and it automatically replaces those words with a link back to the same post.

This is creating confusion for the users because those automatic links bring it back to the same post. Is there a way to

  1. Either disable watched words for a specific category or topic?
  2. Disable watched words (manually) while writing a post?
