Is there any way to change the default for the form to open links clicked in new tabs?

I keep finding something cool to click on, clicking on it and it takes me away from the forum. That's not good for either of us.

There is a way, but I haven't availed us of it. I'm personally of the design persuasion that says it's a user choice, not a site choice. Most platforms and browsers allow you to open a link in a new tab if you want it (I'm a fan of control-clicking, myself, but middle-clicking or right-clicking also offer options), but some people don't want it to happen, so I like the option for either.

That said, I'm certainly open to more feedback. If it looks like the majority wants it to happen automatically, we can make that happen!
