yeah, you are right, non-techy users especially just run away from long
& detailed manuals & they don't look over twice on a small 1 page
I doubt I myself have read any manual except that of PHP!! ;)

I agree. what we are discussing is not "whether to force links in new
or not". the original point of this thread was to remove the
replacement. so if the user wants any link to open in new window, they
simply choose the new window option as they do now but instead of using
the "target" attribute, WordPress simply tags the link's relation as
or something identifiable which can be made to open in new window via
new window or not, its their blog, let them decide!! ;)
