Confluence Wiki - Mixed Case text creates a link. Can you turn this off?

When someone posts something in mixed case, example McAlester it auto creates a link to add a page. Is there a way to turn this off? If you edit the page and unlink the hyperlink it still relinks it after you hit save.

We are on 3.5.14

What you describe is CamelCase linking.

You can prevent a single CamelCase word from becoming a link:

Or turn it off completely:

Thank you so much!

This appears to happen only if you do upper, lower, upper:

Examples:

McAlester

McccccAlester
