> Disclaimer & redirect > () Yea () Nay
Nay for delayed redirect. It's confusing and causes only usability problems. It's also proprietary kludge to HTTP protocol, which has never been approved to standard for a good reason. Either use instant redirect with proper HTTP headers or nothing at all. Having automatic delayed redirect provides nothing useful. If the user misses the disclaimer and starts reading the document instead he will be very annoyed and confused when it suddenly disappears, if user sees the disclaimer he will be perfectly capable of activating the link when he has finished reading the disclaimer and not any time sooner or later.

Yay, of course. -- Flammie, Gentoo Linux Documentation's Finnish head translator. <>
