DesignerNews is almost dead

    A simple change would keep me coming back to read more stories... target="_blank" -- Stop opening links within stories in the same damn window. When ever I click on a story from the feed it opens a new window (why?) but when I click a link inside a story, I've lost my anchor to the thread/comments. Not sure what the thinking is here, but flipping this UX would keep me more engaged.

    Also please make a button that mutes all of the negative elitist banter... or give them their own thread. In the 15 years I've been doing this, I've never seen the appeal of it.
