"Why we should stop clicking links and use Copy Paste?"

Today afternoon, I was quite annoyed by my Internet Explorer that kept jumping between Windows without allowing me to type anything in the address bar of a new opened one. I did a quick Internet search on how to prevent focus stealing in Internet Explorer. One of the forums there was a mention about some solution with TweakUI which I would discuss separately. However, they have mentioned Microsoft Support KB the URL had been misspelt as mocrosoft. See this URL: http://forums.hexus.net/operating-systems-applications/4031-prevent-ie-stealing-focus.html

The Learning:

By mistake, I clicked the link. However, the little desktop utilities in my system screamed alerting me of a possible Phishing Attack. I got a Sunday learning today that we should stop clicking links henceforth unless we are sure of the source and get practiced to copy and paste of the same. While copy-paste, for sure, our eye would scrutinize the spelling typos right?
