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

    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. Jan 31, 2013 at 20:25
