That's only if you think from the browser's point of view. An internal
redirect goes unnoticed by the browser, hence there is no need for
such history manipulation. With an internal redirect there is no
"redirect page" at all, since the new URL is fetched from within the
server, and sent to the browser as the response to the requested URL.

The problem with the world is stupidity. Not saying there should be a
capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the
safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
