Why are Publicity Listings a blue link for everyone in the database, whether they have any publicity or not?

I have noticed that "Publicity Listings" is a blue (supposedly active) link for every person in the database, including those who have nothing to list there -- no interviews, no articles, no magazine cover photos, no nothing.

When a person has no Biography or Other Works or Personal Quotes or Awards to list, those items are grayed out on their page. But for Publicity Listings, it's a blue link whether there is anything there or not.

Could you please turn Publicity Listings into a gray link again for people with nothing to list there? Otherwise, users are going to be repeatedly disappointed, expecting to find publicity information for lots of people who don't actually have it.

Here is an example of the problem that gromit82 has reported:
Nikolay Kanev (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm5861330/) is currently the person with the lowest STARmeter rating. There is a non-grayed-out link to Publicity listings:
Nikolay Kanev's Publicity listings is clearly blank.

Just following-up here, our tech staff have fixed this problem, so publicity links should no longer be active for everyone.

Thanks, Michelle.

The case I cited now works properly.
