Disabling Link to Active Page

I'm wondering if its better to make the link of the active page disabled or not.

So if i have:

Home | About | Services | Contact

and the user is on the About page, should the About link be inactive so that the user can't click it? It is after all a redundant function as the user won't acheive anything if they are already on the about page and click the About link.

You thoughts appreciated...

I never disable a link in a menu, but I make it obvious of what page you are currently on (e.g. change the color).

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
