The Cucking Stool is now set to open links in a new window. This was necessary because some of Spot's more inattentive readers were following a link to some juicy tidbit provided by Spot and then just wandering off lost.
Regrettably, the "back" button won't take you to the original Cucking Stool window. You will have to "manually" close this new window. Spot uses Firefox and has it set to open new tabs in the same browser session rather than a whole new session; this is the way to go.
