Isn't it about time that, for me anyway, the annoying "automatic" redirects were removed - or at the very least are made as a user option.

When I have completed an action I want to decide where to go next, not be taken to somewhere that I don't want to go and then have to backtrack. When the redirects were originally introduced PCs, servers, Internet connects and browsers wee slower so there was mor "lag" before the redirect kicked in which gave you time to choose your own action - now with everything so much faster this is not always possible.

May be an user option but removed at all.
No need to explain the reasons why, I guess. :)
