You're conflating two distinct questions:
1. what is your desired behavior when using a webpage?
2. what behavior are you dictating for others who are reading a webpage?
The question is, who is in control -- the author or the reader?
I frequently use "open in new tab" as a web reader. As a reader, I also
hate it when authors force it on me when I didn't ask.
I would never consider forcing "open in new tab" as an author. If the
user wants to open in a new tab, they will do so.

Yep, preferences expressed by the reader are important. That's why
authors should never force the reader to open in a new tab/window.
