How should links behave in BSD HD?

I'm testdriving here...this is my first HD 'Fanpost'....In another thread, I had suggested to Mike a different way for embedded links to behave. My preference, when reading enveloping and excellent blogs like BSD, is to have it remain open always. Such that, when clicking a link Mike included, the link launches a new window. This way, I can read up on the outside source and just close it when I'm finished, instead of the link navigating me away from my favorite starting point.

He pointed out that many others might prefer a single window that navigates away, and users can just click the back button to return to BSD. This eliminates what many consider an overabundance of windows that leaves them feeling like they just got hit with popups.

So, trying out the poll feature....
