Two comments: First, Iím not worried about sane sites (well, not as much :-) ). If all we had to worry about were sane sites we wouldnít need popup blockers, URL filters, malware blockers, noscript, etc. Second, did you mention to your users some of the negative possibilities? If not, Iíd suggest that they werenít upset/offended/horrified simply because they didnít think of the downsides.
