Bloggers, heads up! "some things I hate about blogs"

From "troy" on briankinney.journalspace.com (which I found because the blog has the good taste to link to UV) "some things I hate about blogs"

The list includes (but is not limited to, click the link if you're interested)
  • Pictures that force the browser to resize them.
  • when links open up in a new window.
  • when you miserably fail at trying to protect a copyright by removing the right click function so that I cannot choose to "open in new tab"
  • Not updating regularly.
  • Apologizing for not posting.
What I thought was interesting was the complaint about "when links open up in a new window."

I offer the option ("Click here to open links in new window") because I know some people prefer "open new" over "do not open new" but it never occurred to me that someone would complain when links automatically open up a new window.

In the comments section, someone (troy? even though the reply is from "briansean"?) points out that a right-click lets you open a link in a new window but there's no way to kill a page's "open in a new window" command.

Is there?
