Thanks for the message.  How quickly we forget.  I had this problem, and
the solution presented to me was to add this to my ~/.emacs-w3m file:

(remove-hook 'w3m-after-cursor-move-hook
     #'w3m-print-this-url)

Do you still get other messages after the hook exits?   If both
solutions work and there is no difference in effect then I say OK.  It
does seem to me that the better solution would be the one that removes
the offending function from the hook, as this still allows other
messages, whatever they might be, to be heard.

If it works for you with no unintended side effects then I see nothing
wrong with it.  Function is, after all, the goal.

Thanks again for bringing this back to mind,
