Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This is a silly edge-case that doesn't make much sense, and I may be the only person who has clicked on the "Log Out" link while on the "Log Out" page, but I think the "cancel" link in this case should link to the home page.

Now, If you already keep a recent history of visited pages for the user in memory, perhaps the most recent page that wasn't the "Log Out" page should be used instead of the referer header.

Or you could just link to a Google search for recursion. :-p

What made you do such thing in the first place? ;) – Shadow Wizard Jan 31 '13 at 20:22
I'm implementing this very thing right now, and was wondering what StackOverflow did. But I'm thinking about replacing the word "cancel" with "recurse" in my case, if I can get approval for it from my boss. – David Murdoch Jan 31 '13 at 20:25

Logout link on the Stack Exchange™ MultiCollider SuperDropdown™ will not longer appear if you are on the logout page.

To be seen in the next build.
