And locking out all non-js using browsers, or people browsing with js 
turned off.

This isnt a difficult thing to work around to allow the link to work 
with your js if its around, or the _new target if js isnt around.

In general (While I love the site), the reliance on js is not so good.

Especially considering the only reason for 'requiring' js is candy, 
there should be a way to access everything on the site with js turned 
completely off.
