Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Just to explain where it is coming from: that suggestion is from the fact that 10985 is a frequently linked and highly upvoted question with (strangely enough) the same tags as itself; but you are absolutely right - it should recuse itself from the dialog. This will be fixed in the next deploy.
