    Thumbs down Links openning in same window

    Why do all outside links within forum posts here open in the same page? It's really getting annoying. Some of the links don't let you go back to the post by clicking Back and I have to search for where I was and continue browsing that way.

    Hello

    I am personally glad the links here at SP allow me to decide where to open them.

    I love the comments in the other related threads that say "It's so annoying to have to right-click or shift-click..."



    How lazy can you get?

    I like this way better... I middle click everything except for the times where it's feasible to open it in the current window (I'm on my last unviewed thread, for example)- with _blank set I can't do that. In the current way, well, things are nice.
