well, I agree that its annoying sometimes when all links start opening 
in a
new tab, but then, IMHO, the links to other sites should open in a new
window as it makes the like of common Joe user easier as he still has 
old site opened as he might not know how to come back to if the link
opened in the same window & then he clicked a few more links as well. 
are forgetting on thing, things are designed keeping the kind of people 
will be using them most & the number of dumb people is quite higher than
those of knowledgeable ones!! these are the people who sometimes don't
know how to open a link in a new window or tab!!
